Russian invade

Type in the above to Google and there will be a zillion hits related to one country. If you guessed Ukraine, congratulations. Putin has deployed 40 "battalion tactical groups" (BTGS) to the border with the former Soviet state. Russia is said to have 94,000 troops, 1,200 tanks, 1,600 pieces of the artillery, 330 aircraft, 75 warships and six submarines in the region.
Ukrainian commander Kyrylo Budanov, the head of Kiev's defence intelligence agency, laid out the scale of the attack involving some 100,000 soldiers. Budanov added Russia will first attempt to further destabilize Ukraine by stoking unrest, protests and attempting to undermine president Volodymyr Zelensky. He blamed the ongoing border crisis between Belarus and Ukraine on the Russians.
