U.S. President Joe Biden has called on U.S. citizens to leave Ukraine immediately because of growing threats to Russia’s military presence.
This information was given by BBC Online on Friday (February 11).
The US president has said that if Russia invades Ukraine, he will not send troops to rescue Americans there.
The BBC reports that Russia has repeatedly denied plans to invade Ukraine, despite the deployment of more than 100,000 troops on the border. However, they have already begun extensive military exercises with neighboring Belarus and Ukraine has accused Russia of blocking access to the sea.
The Kremlin says they want to use the “red line” to prevent former Soviet neighbors from joining NATO.
The U.S. State Department has called on U.S. citizens residing in Ukraine to leave the country immediately.
