On Wednesday, Newsweek reported that U.S. intelligence officials said the Biden administration informed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy it had intelligence indicating Russia would commence a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in the next 48 hours.

A U.S. official with what Newsweek called “direct knowledge” stated, “The President of Ukraine has been warned Russia will highly likely begin an invasion within 48 hours based on U.S. intelligence. Additionally, reporting from aircraft observers indicates Russia violated Ukrainian airspace earlier today, flying possible reconnaissance aircraft for a short period over Ukraine.”

“A source close to Zelenskyy’s government also confirmed to Newsweek that such a warning was received,” Newsweek added.

A second U.S. intelligence official also spoke to Newsweek and said the invasion would include a thrust from the pro-Moscow rebel-held Donbas region and another thrust toward the capital Kyiv from the northern border with Belarus, adding that they would probably be implemented at night.
