The tension rapidly mounting along Ukraine border. The Pentagon said some 8,500 combat-ready US troops are on high alert to deploy at short notice amid rising tension over Ukraine, Russia continues to deny planning military action against Ukraine, despite deploying 100,000 troops nearby.

President Biden held a video call with European allies yesterday, as Western powers aim for a common strategy against Russian aggression.

However, the Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said no decision had yet been made on whether to deploy troops. He said It would only happen if the NATO military alliance decides to activate a rapid-reaction force.  As of now there are no plans to deploy to Ukraine itself.

Some Nato members, including Denmark, Spain, France and the Netherlands, are already planning or considering sending fighter jets and warships to eastern Europe to bolster defences in the region.

Over the weekend, some 90 tonnes of US "lethal aid" including ammunition for "front-line defenders" arrived in Ukraine.
