BREAKING: Ukrainian president confirms Russian invasion will happen in TWO DAYS

So much for Biden’s threats. Ukrainian President Zelensky is now confirming that the Russian invasion is definitely happening and that it will commence in two days:

Here’s more from The Hill:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Monday said that he has been informed that Russia will attack on Wednesday.

The comments from the Ukrainian leader, made in an address to his nation posted on Facebook, come amid heightened tensions between Kyiv and Moscow.

Russia has amassed more than 100,000 troops near the Ukrainian border. The troop buildup had raised concerns among the U.S. and NATO allies that Russia is planning a military incursion, but Moscow has continually denied having any such plans.

Zelensky wrote in a statement on Facebook that Ukraine will hold a Day of Unity on Wednesday. He said the relevant decree has already been signed.

He said, “We are told that February 16 will be the day of the attack,” according to a Facebook translation of his comments.

The Biden administration has already closed their embassy in Kyiv and is moving it to Lviv because of the “dramatic acceleration in the buildup of Russian forces”:

Lviv is along the western border of Ukraine near Poland and about 300 miles west of Kyiv.

UPDATE: “U.S. officials say satellite images show Russian troops moving into attack positions.”
