THREE chilling clues reveal Ukraine’s exact date before Vladimir Putin sent troops.
In a widely anticipated move, about 10,000 troops switch to bilingual Russian Ukraine’s breakaway regions.
The invasion began in the early hours immediately after Putin declared his decision in an address with his country.
The hero of the Kremlin has deployed a force of 200,000 troops and 500 aircraft on the border with Ukraine and left the world guessing when he will strike.
But in the past few weeks, there have been clues that have predicted the exact date with amazing accuracy.
Back in December, Russian MP Vladimir Zhirinovsky gave a speech to the country’s parliament.
The 75-year-old leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, told MPs: “You will feel it at 4 a.m. on February 22. I want a peaceful 2022. But I love the truth.”
Zhirinovksy, head of the KGB founded by the KGB and dubbed the Kremlin’s joker, continued: “It won’t be peaceful. It will be a year when Russia is great again.”
Another clue, which emerged this week, shows that the logo of the Russian Foreign Ministry has added “22.02.22” to its Twitter logo.

Those with knowledge of recent Russian history can also spot clues to the chronology.
February 22 is the anniversary of the day that popular protests in Ukraine – known as the Maidan Revolution – toppled pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych and toppled his regime.
Events at the time were seen by many as putting Russia and Ukraine on a collision course.
Ukraine was aligned with Russia as part of the Soviet Union until its collapse in 1991, after which the country became an independent country.
Both countries remained closely intertwined – but Ukraine gradually began to separate, seeking deeper ties with the West.
Open conflict was triggered by the revolution of 2014 – when an uprising overthrew Viktor Yanukovych.
Putin’s forces responded by annexing the Crimea region from Ukraine – a move widely condemned by the West.
February 22 is also a day in the tumultuous history of Russia itself.
On that day, strikes began in Russia that led to a revolution that led to the overthrow of Tsar Alexander II.
The tsar ordered the army to suppress the riots by force, but the army in the city refused and they ignored it and joined the protest.
Having lost the support of the army and under the advice of his army generals and ministers, the tsar abdicated.
