Massive buildup of Ukrainian troops along the border with The Donbass and Crimea: 100,000 troops, hundreds of tanks and heavy artillery, GRADS and killer drones. President Zelinsky of Ukraine announced on TV that Ukraine would attack and take back The Donbass AND Crimea.
As a response, Russia, taking this threat seriously, has also deployed thousands of troops, cruise missile batteries, tanks, and missile defense systems. President Putin has warned Ukraine in no uncertain terms that an attack would have serious consequences for the state of Ukraine.
