Amid the Russia-Ukraine border situation, American officials are speculating that a military escalation in Ukraine might result in the deaths of 50,000 civilians. It is also speculated that a full-scale fight may kill up to 25,000 Ukrainian soldiers and 10,000 Russian military personnel, with one to five million refugees fleeing to Poland. As per New York Times, American sources suggest that Moscow is allegedly finalizing plans for a full-scale invasion of Ukraine which might seize Kyiv in less than 48 hours and depose President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The officials stated that the Russian army has deployed 83 battalion tactical groups near Ukraine as of Friday, which is roughly similar to an American battalion of 750 to 1,000 soldiers, according to AP News. They further said that this is an increase from the 60 battalion tactical groups in place just two weeks prior. Many European countries have warned Russia that if they attack Ukraine, sanctions will be imposed on them. The UK has said that the sanctions will be felt by the Russian people.
The US also says that the Kremlin will put in place an operation to silence the Ukrainian intelligentsia and activists.
Partisans will be shot on sight.
