Any American in Ukraine should leave as soon as possible- Jake Sullivan, US security advisor

The United States raised the alarm on Friday over Ukraine, warning that a Russian invasion starting with civilians caught under aerial bombing could start in days and telling US citizens to leave within 48 hours.

The United States raised the alarm on Friday over Ukraine, warning that a Russian invasion starting with civilians caught under aerial bombing could start in days and telling US citizens to leave within 48 hours.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters in Washington that an attack by the more than 100,000 Russian troops currently massed next to Ukraine “could occur any day now,”

The scenario of an imminent attack is “a very, very distinct possibility,” Sullivan said.

“If a Russian attack on Ukraine proceeds, it is likely to begin with aerial bombing and missile attacks that could obviously kill civilians,” he said. “Any American in Ukraine should leave as soon as possible, and in any event in the next 24 to 48 hours.”

Sullivan spoke shortly after Biden and six European leaders, the heads of NATO and the European Union held talks on the worst crisis between the West and Russia since the end of the Cold War.

A US official said Biden would speak with Putin on Saturday, while the French government said that President Emmanuel Macron would also be calling the Russian leader on Saturday.
