The White House says it no longer describes a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine as imminent, suggesting that the word has been misused. This was stated by speaker of the White House Jen Psaki, - European Pravda reports.
"I used this word once. I think others used it at one time too. And then we stopped using it because I think it sent a signal that we were not going to send, as if we know that President Putin made the decision", - Psaki said.
Last week, Psaki stated that the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine continues to be "inevitable", which led to a negative reaction from Kyiv. Ukrainian officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky, disagreed and stated that such descriptions could cause panic and economic shock.
