U.S. intelligence is saying they have found that the Kremlin is planning a multi-front offensive on Ukraine involving up to 175,000 troops, according to U.S. officials in an intelligence document.
According to reports, “The Russian plans call for a military offensive against Ukraine as soon as early 2022 with a scale of forces twice what we saw this past spring during Russia’s snap exercise near Ukraine’s borders,” said an administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information.
The official went on to say, “The plans involve extensive movement of 100 battalion tactical groups with an estimated 175,000 personnel, along with armor, artillery and equipment.”
The Kremlin has been moving troops toward the border with Ukraine while demanding Washington guarantee that Ukraine will not join NATO and that the alliance will refrain from certain military activities in and around Ukrainian territory.
The unclassified U.S. intelligence document in the reports, includes satellite photos, shows Russian forces massing in four locations. Currently, 50 battlefield tactical groups are deployed, along with “newly arrived” tanks and artillery, according to the document.
But it predicts a buildup to as many as 175,000 troops and describes extensive movement of battalion tactical groups to and from the border “to obfuscate intentions and to create uncertainty.”
The intelligence document also suggests that Russian forces may be leaving equipment behind at training facilities to allow an attack on Ukraine to commence quickly.
Details of the U.S. intelligence provided a picture to Secretary of State Antony Blinken where he described “evidence that Russia has made plans for significant aggressive moves against Ukraine.”
The Russian military moves come as Moscow has raised eyebrows in Washington with a sudden mobilization of reservists this year and a dramatic escalation of its rhetoric regarding Ukraine.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “the nightmare scenario of military confrontation is returning.” And Russian President Putin said in an article published on the Kremlin website that Ukraine is a part of the historical lands of Russia.
The Biblical prophecies (Ezekiel 38, Ezekiel 39) foretell an alliance of countries brought under the dominion of the Last Days Prince of Rus (Rosh) also called Gog of Magog that will attempt to invade Israel in an event that is a major on-ramp for end-time prophecy fulfillment.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
