339

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Kiev amid growing fears of Russia's imminent invasion of Ukraine, BBC News reports.

Despite the fact that Russia has repeatedly denied plans to attack the neighboring country, senior American officials say that Moscow can attack "at any moment."

According to the announcement of the State Department, the visit of the head of American diplomacy is described as an attempt to "strengthen the commitment of the United States to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine."

Blinken is meeting with Zelenskyy and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Wednesday “to reinforce the United States’ commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the State Department said.

“The trip follows extensive diplomacy with our European Allies and partners about a united approach to address the threat Russia poses to Ukraine and our joint efforts to encourage it to choose diplomacy and de-escalation in the interests of security and stability,” it said.
