Apparently, the Pentagon has informed the Biden government that Russia’s plans would include the transfer of 100 battalion tactical groups, along with armored vehicles, artillery and equipment.

The disclosure came as Russia has insisted on its demands on Biden to guarantee that he will not be allowed to Ukraine join NATO.

We have been aware of the actions of Russia for a long time, and my expectation is that we are going to have a long discussion with Putin, “Biden told the media.
