Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is ‘inevitable and imminent’ as Kiev blames Putin for cyberattack amid World War 3 fears

A NGA invasion of Ukraine was deemed “inevitable and imminent” as Kiev blamed Vladimir Putin for a large-scale cyberattack.

House Defense Committee Chairman Tobias Ellwood, MP, issued the warning as fears of a new war loomed in Eastern Europe.

The eyes of the world are on Ukraine as Putin gathered nearly 100,000 troops along with an arsenal of artillery and tanks in the area.

It was feared that Vlad could launch a full-scale invasion in a matter of weeks – or even days – to occupy territory due to Russia to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Mr Ellwood described the potential invasion as “inevitable and imminent” after a cyberattack left much of the country without heat, light and access to cash.

And today Ukraine pointed the finger at Russia over the alleged hack as a prelude to an invasion.

Russia has denied it was behind the attack.

“I fear a Russian invasion is inevitable and imminent and we have allowed this to happen,” Mr Ellwood told The Daily Mail.

“We had the opportunity to place enough equipment and troops in Ukraine to make President Putin think twice about invading, but we didn’t.”

He added: “Only President Putin knows what he will do next, but next week looks very important.

“He negotiated himself and after Nato refused to bow to his threats, there seemed to be only one option left.”

In a follow-up tweet, Mr. Ellwood wrote: “Russia is on the brink of an invasion. And will once again try to redraw the map of Eastern Europe. History will ask – why don’t we learn from it? history?”

Putin is said to want reclaim more territory died when the Soviet Union collapsed.

And he first infiltrated Ukraine in 2014 when the Russian military illegally annexed the Crimean peninsula – prompting international condemnation.

Conflict has flared in eastern Ukraine since Putin-backed rebels fought against the government in the disputed Donbas region.

Ukraine said on Sunday that Russia is believed to be behind last week’s cyberattack.

All evidence points to Russia being behind the cyberattack. Moscow continues to wage a mixed war and is actively building up its forces in the field of information and cyberspace, the ministry statement said.

On Saturday, Foreign Minister Liz Truss condemns Russia’s military build-up on the Ukrainian border and called on Moscow to “stop the aggression”.

She tweeted: “Russia is waging a disinformation campaign to destabilize and justify an invasion of its sovereign neighbor Ukraine.

“Russia must stop being aggressive, downplay, and engage in meaningful negotiations.”

A Russian invasion of Ukraine would violate “the most fundamental freedoms and sovereignty,” the defense minister said last week after a visit to Scandinavia.

Delivering his second warning in a week to Moscow, Ben Wallace said there would be “consequences” if any Russian aggression against Ukraine was to come.

Tensions on the Ukrainian border continue to escalate, with the United States claiming that Moscow is preparing a “false flag operation” to spark an invasion of neighboring territory.

Mr. Wallace met with his Nordic counterparts last week to discuss Russia’s continued aggression and military buildup on the Ukrainian border, with about 100,000 troops concentrated in the divided zone.

The UK and our Nordic partners are united in our approach to maintaining European security.

“My discussions this week directly revolved around deepening bilateral relations, mutual security and the consequences of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

“Our discussions made it clear that a Russian invasion of Ukraine would be a strategic mistake, a violation of the most basic of freedoms and sovereignty.

“Britain and the Nordic countries have a long and common history.

“Our European neighbors and allies remain important partners as we work together to defend shared values, combat shared threats and build resilience.” In our neighbourhood, the UK will always stand with them.”
