Attack is imminent

Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod calls the situation very, very serious.

Russia's deployment of more than 100,000 soldiers on the borders with Ukraine is a heightened threat to Ukraine's freedom and territorial integrity.

According to the United States, intelligence indicates an imminent attack. Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod therefore convenes the Foreign Policy Board to inform about Danish measures.

The Foreign Minister calls on Russia to choose diplomacy – and not to escalate the situation further, thus shaking up the entire European security order.
