International Editor

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has urged Russia to follow a “diplomatic and peaceful path”, while warning that Moscow could invade Ukraine at any moment.

Russia, which has about 100,000 troops along the Ukrainian border, is holding firm, declaring the US couldn’t force them to pull back.

Mr Blinken, who will meet his Russian counterpart on Friday in Geneva, is promising that no option was off the table.
