US tells UN a 'full-scale' invasion of Ukraine is imminent

The United States believes a "full-scale" further invasion of Ukraine by Russia is imminent, Washington's ambassador to the United Nations warned at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, saying this is a "perilous" moment.

"Tonight we’re seeing the Russians close airspace, move troops into Donbass, and move forces into combat-ready positions," US envoy to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said.
