US-RUSSIA

Russia's Interfax reporting that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is set to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv tomorrow (19 January).

  • Comes as Tass reports commments from Russian Foreign Ministry that a meeting between Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is still 'a work in progress' (see 1028GMT EM bullet).
  • Tensions reaching new highs in past 24 hours with some viewing potential of Russian military incursion into Ukraine as 'imminent'.
  • The UK has begun providing anti-tank weaponry to Ukraine, with UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace stating that “We have taken the decision to supply Ukraine with light anti-armor defensive weapon systems...They are not strategic weapons and pose no threat to Russia. They are to use in self-defense.” A small number of British troops have been sent to Ukraine to train security forces on the use of the weapons.
