WH: US, allies ready for all scenarios in Ukraine

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated at a press conference on Monday the United States and its allies have been consulting and "refining plans for all scenarios" concerning the situation on the border between Ukraine and Russia.

Psaki noted the increased concerns that a "military action by Russia could come at any time" comes from the fact that "we're seeing preparations they are making at the border." She added that President Joe Biden is ready to send additional military assistance to countries such as Ukraine, Romania, and Poland in case Moscow launches an invasion. Asked why Kiev was not a part of Biden's video call with European leaders on the issue, Psaki said this encounter was about "deterrence" and "defense," and that Ukraine will be included in many discussions "to come."

Her comments come after the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) sent additional ships and jets to Eastern Europe in anticipation of a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine.
