According to Kirby, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recommended that US President Joe Biden put the troops on alert to prepare them for potential deployment in Europe. He decided to do so due to indications that Moscow would not de-escalate tensions with Ukraine.

The development of the situation related to Ukraine is currently the subject of a video discussion between US President Joe Biden and European leaders, which was to begin on Monday at 9 pm CET. These consultations are taking place in the framework of coordination between transatlantic allies and partners in response to the accumulation of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border, according to a White House statement.
