National Security Adviser Says Russia Planning ‘Extremely Violent’ Ops to ‘Crush’ Ukraine, CC BY 4.0 via Wikimedia Commons

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan is warning that Russia is closer than ever to invading Ukraine and the outcome will be devastating. On Monday, Sullivan warned that is Russia invades they will likely work to “crush” Ukraine.

The Hill reports:

“We believe that any military operation of the size, scope and magnitude of what we believe the Russians are planning will be extremely violent. It will cost the lives of Ukrainians and Russians, civilians and military personnel alike,” Sullivan said during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show.

“But we also have intelligence to suggest that there will be an even greater form of brutality because this will not simply be some conventional war between two armies,” he added. “It will be a war waged by Russia on the Ukrainian people to repress them, to crush them, to harm them.”

Approximately 190,000 Russian soldiers have amassed near Ukraine’s borders. Russian officials have claimed that some of their forces are moving away from Ukraine, though the Biden administration has dismissed those assertions.

On Sunday, Russian officials announced that military exercises between Russia and Belarus that were set to end this week will be extended indefinitely.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has agreed to meet with his Russian counterpart Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov this week provided Russia does not invade Ukraine, amid a push to de-escalate tensions through diplomacy.

On Sunday, President Biden similarly agreed to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin “in principle” on the condition that the Russian leader not proceed with an invasion of Ukraine.

Other reports reveal that a U.S official warned the United Nations that Russia has lists of Ukrainian individuals “to be killed or sent to camps following a military occupation.”

Fox News reports:

Bathsheba Crocker, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, sent a letter to the U.N. human rights chief, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

“I would like to bring to your attention disturbing information recently obtained by the United States that indicates that human rights violations and abuses in the aftermath of a further invasion are being planned,” Crocker wrote. “These acts, which in past Russian operations have included targeted killings, kidnappings/forced disappearances, unjust detentions, and the use of torture, would likely target those who oppose Russian actions, including Russian and Belarusian dissidents in exile in Ukraine, journalists and anti-corruption activists, and vulnerable populations such as religious and ethnic minorities and LGBTQI+ persons.”

“Specifically, we have credible information that indicates Russian forces are creating lists of identified Ukrainians to be killed or sent to camps following a military occupation,” she warned. “We also have credible information that Russian forces will likely use lethal measures to disperse peaceful protests or otherwise counter peaceful exercises of perceived resistance from civilian populations.”

  1. If you want to stop this, approve Ukraine’s request to join NATO, immediately. Putin in the latest conversations has seemed to indicate that he is afraid of NATO’s Article Five, which is if a NATO member is attacked, all of NATO will respond with force. This will end it now as no leader is stupid enough to cause a war that big. NATO and the U.S. can stop any aggression with the amount of training and equipment we have, minus what Numb-nuts Biden left for the Taliban.

    1. How long does it take join NATO?
      Do all NATO members want Ukarine to join?
      Referring to our current leader as numb nuts emboldens Putin.
      Is that what you want?
      Sacrifice Ukarine for Trump 2024?
      If Russia occupies Ukarine on Nov. 1 Trump will win by a landslide.
      The end by any means?

      1. We won’t have a country by 2024 you people really are stupid Putin is not going to invade second eve if he did i don’t give a shit about a country that helped steal the 2020 election further more there are agreements that were signed by both the united state and Russia not do these sort of thing soooo the united state is and the EU are breaking signed deals period

  2. I don’t know about the rest of you. Something about all this smells bad to me.
    If I didn’t know any better, I would say that O’biden wants this war to happen.
    Distracts from everything BAD that’s going on in our country. Bad economy all the way around, gas prices through the roof, inflation at an all time high, and you know the rest.
    They’re hoping to boost his approval ratings, and make it look like they know how to handle this.
    When’s the last time so much detail has been given about war? During President Trump’s 4 years how many times did we go to war???
    I smell fish!!!
    And I DON’T WANT TO HEAR FROM AL the ASS. He seems to take over the discussion, when his opinion is not asked for or needed.

    1. Hi Nine Island Girl I agree with you 100% and this Al the ASS is probably Soros Son especially with the comments he makes. Most American people who legally voted for Biden are complete A SS Holes. Where is Bidens Build Back Better plan? He destroyed our Energy Independance with the Stroke of His Executive Order Pen. Who says he is proud of the Afghanistan withdrawal with over 120,000 people but left behind many Americans. Of the 120,000 people withdrawn by our Military are properly vetted to be let into our Country, The old Adage of Conquer from within, has been put in place by Biden. His whole family has made Millions with ties to Russia, China, and Ukraine. The Biden Family is owned mainly by China’s Communist party. Nancy pelosi planned the January 6th Capital Riot by refusing the national Guard protection from President Trump 2 days prior. Pelosi wanted to setup a sitting President for an Insurrection charge that she should be charged with. Americans have to be Blind not to see the Kangaroo Court she setup to investigation this False Accusation of the Capital Insurrection supposedly caused by President Trump. She refuse Rep. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks to sit on the Republican side of the investigation and then she pi8cked too Republican Trump HATERS to sit on the Panel. As speaker of the House she doesn’t rightfully have the Power to pick and choose who will be on the Panel which was supposed to be Bi-Partisan. Many of our Politicians have become Millionaires due to their influence and vote in passing certain bills that allow their spouses to trade in the Stock market making the Millions. Insider Trading? Also if the Republicans don’t stick together instead of declaring a victory in the upcoming mid-term elections they are foolish. Any Political Party that can Steal a Presi9dential Election can easy steal the Mid-Terms.

  3. The nation wants to know what “go Brandon” will do about the Keystone pipeline if the invasion goes forward. I would guess Ukraine has agents capable of clandestine forays into nations using Nord Stream and along the existing Nord Stream 2 line. Seems to me Russia’s vulnerabilities outweigh any gains they might realize from seizing Ukraine’s border land.

  4. Why is it that Mr. 81 million votes Joe is so ‘worried’ about what is going on between Russia and Ukraine when our southern border remains wide oven with no attempt made whatsoever to stop the invasion of illegals flowing across it?

    1. That is so Biden can give them complete amnesty so they can legally vote for the Democratic party. Biden and his entire Administration should be charged with aiding and abetting illegal immigrants in entering our Country against our own Rule of Law on immigration. They also should be charged with assisting in any criminal charges that these illegal immigrants perpetrate against our Legal American Citizens, like assaults, Rape, Murder and so forth. A Illegal Immigrant is an Illegal Immigrant pertaining to our Rule of Law and should be detained and deported back to their own Country. Also it is perfectly Legal for our Country to charge and extradite the members of the Drug Cartel for all the Drug Deaths caused by their poisoned Phentinol pills they illegally traffic into our Country. If this administration doesn’t want to do that then we need a secret Black Ops unit to go to Mexico to Kill and Burn down every thing the Cartels own. Confiscate all their financial holdings and burn and destroy their illegal drug factories to the ground. Why m8ust we stand by and watch this President destroy our Country and kill off many drug addicts kill themselves and first time users of Phentinol because they are curious about the high they will get using it. We as Patriots must take back our Country from the Bleeding heart Liberal Democrats whose only concern is their greed for wealth. They impeached president Trump three time and still harass him to this day. President Trump was well on his way to stopping these Politicians from becoming wealthier from repeatedly going to the Federal cash Cow for withdrawals of the Tax payers MONEY.

  5. Jake Sullivan, White House national security adviser, is just another Biden lap dog idiot. I’m not sure there is even ONE competent person in the entire Biden Administration. It really is a gaggle of pathetic and incompetent fools.

  6. How much longer does Joe Biden think people are going to listen to his War Mongering Fear Porn? Putin will not play into your hands; he is smarter than Biden. We understand that Joe Biden wants this war for the money that it will bring in for him and other to line their pockets. The Biden Régime is a dictatorship fashioned after Communism that Putin brought his country out of. What a reversal of roles. Russia becomes a Republic and America becomes Communist.

      1. Well President kept all of our adversaries at bay while he was in Office. Iran, China, N. Korea and Russia stayed in their places for fear that President Trump would do what had to be done to confront them. Now all these adversaries are pulling together to conquer our once Great Nation. I will say that Patriotic Americans must stand up and demand that the Democratic Party re-instate most of President Trumps Policies to make us all safe again. The Ignorant Middle Class Democratic Voters believe that their Party is looking out for their best interest. Has anyone noticed how some very wealthy people would never say Hello to us let alone help us when we are in need. Stand up and be counted Patriotic Americans, take back our Country before it is lost forever.

  7. I came back to see if the ass was busy responding to everyone who won’t give him the time of day.
    Sure enough. He doesn’t disappoint! Idiot!

    1. You have a lot of negativity for Trump, and Biden as well. Got it. But who do you think is a great president, or world leader? Someone like Putin?

  8. They need a event to cover all there illegal activity don’t forget the puppet in the white house is guilty of criminal wrong doing he and Hunter Biden as well Nancy pants Pelosi Jhon Carry Mr. swift boat

  9. So sad that in less than 30 years, the USSR is resurfacing … as if it ever went away!
    This threat wouldn’t be happening on Trump’s watch!
