Does Russia’s ‘false flag’ attack indicate a Ukraine invasion in days? – An in-depth analysis
Emboldened Russia is commanding the world stage with outlandish manoeuvres.
From ‘false flag’ attacks inside Ukraine to an influx of troops on the Ukraine border.
Senior Western government figures believe these among other factors are signals Putin has decided to invade in the next matter of days.
The Sun talks to Russian and European politics expert, Richard Sakwa, for an in-depth look at the key developments in the unfolding crisis.

Intelligence on possible targets has been shared with Ukraine and other partners in the region.
Some of the “alternative” media coverage from the US is just about as bad.
