Biden tells Ukraine’s president to ‘prepare for impact’ Russia invasion looms.

JOE Biden has reportedly warned Ukraine's president to "prepare for impact" as Russia could invade in days.

It's understood the US president told Volodymyr Zelensky that a February invasion is now "virtually certain" with more than Russian 120,000 troops massed on the border within striking distance.

A Ukrainian official reportedly told CNN that the call on Thursday "did not go well" as Zelensky relayed dire warnings from Biden that Moscow "may attempt to occupy" the capital.

But the White House has hit back at these claims, instead insisting Biden has warned about a potentially imminent invasion "for months".

Emily Horne, of the US National Security Council, tweeted: "This is not true.

"President Biden said that there is a distinct possibility that the Russians could invade Ukraine in February.

"He has previously said this publicly & we have been warning about this for months."

"President Biden reaffirmed the readiness of the United States along with its allies and partners to respond decisively if Russia further invades Ukraine," it reads.
