In light of the significant deterioration of the security situation in eastern Ukraine, @OSCE Chairman-in-Office, FM @RauZbigniew and OSCE Secretary General @HelgaSchmid_SG made the following statement
"Ukrainian forces have shown great judgment and I might add, restraint" per @POTUS "They refuse to allow Russian forces to bate them into war" "But the fact remains, Russian troops currently have Ukraine surrounded"
"As of this moment I'm convinced he's made the decision," Biden says when asked whether he thinks Putin has decided to invade Ukraine
"We believe they will target Kyiv," Biden says outright about Russia's plans - says US believes it could happen "in the coming days"
Biden: In the past few days we have seen violations of the ceasefire in the Donbass region by Russian forces
It "defies basic logic" to think that Ukraine would choose this moment to escalate the conflict, given so many Russian troops are on their border, President Biden says
"More and more disinformation" being pushed out to the Russian public, says @POTUS
Biden said he called European leaders and members of Congress to discuss Ukraine. "Despite Russia's efforts to divide us at home and abroad, I can affirm that has not happened"
Psaki says President Joe Biden will remain in D.C. throughout the weekend while "closely monitoring developments in Ukraine." "Throughout next week, the President will continue close coordination with our allies and partners on Russia's potential further invasion of Ukraine"

Russian foreign Ministry comments on response: it is inappropriate to demand to withdraw troops from certain regions of Russia. Russia demands Ukraine implements Minsk agreements, the West should stop weapons delivery to Ukraine, withdraw what was delivered already, recall all instructors and advisors from Ukraine, prohibition of NATO joint exercises with Ukraine. Russia demands all U.S. troops and weapons withdrawal from Central and Eastern Europe, Baltic countries. Russia expects proposals on non-expansion of NATO. Russia highlights that questions on arms control cannot be considered separately from other points
SecDef Austin: no sign of de-escalation, "quite the contrary we see them add to the more than 150 thousand troops that they have already arrayed on that border even in the last couple of days." Added: "We even see them stocking up their blood supplies"
