The US has accused Russia of planning a fake attack to justify its invasion of Ukraine.

U.S. officials say Moscow could release video showing an attack on Russian territory or against Russian-speaking people in eastern Ukraine.

Russia denied planning a “fake” attack, and the US offered no evidence.

The concentration of tens of thousands of Russian troops along Ukraine’s borders has raised fears of an invasion.
