Ukraine’s defense intelligence agency chief says Russia is moving troops and preparing to attack his country, but this time in a much more devastating way than during the conflict that started in 2014 and saw around 14,000 Ukrainians killed.

  • Howard Altman, senior managing editor at Military Times, said Russia has approximately 92,000 troops around Ukraine’s border and is preparing to attack in late January or early February, which would be a “big game changer” with major consequences.
  • Altman said it is unknown what exactly Russia will do and that the country is trying to destabilize the Ukrainian government through disinformation campaigns in advance of any attack.
  • Altman said the United States has not moved troops or equipment in response but is discussing implementing additional sanctions and providing weapons to Ukraine, a democracy the U.S. supports.
