World News: Russia could be preparing for Ukraine invasion: report Updated: 2021-11-23 12:58:07 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

According to Bloomberg, citing its military sources, the U.S. has shared intelligence including maps with allies in Europe, that "show a buildup of Russian troops and artillery to prepare for a rapid, large-scale push into Ukraine from multiple locations".
The head of Ukraine's defense intelligence also told the Military Times on Saturday, that Russia is planning an attack around the end of January or early February, adding the invasion would likely involve "airstrikes, artillery and armor attacks", followed by airborne and amphibious assaults, as well as smaller land incursions through neighboring Belarus.
The Kremlin in response, have gone on a verbal offensive, while stressing the importance of a still unconfirmed U.S.-Russia summit, which Moscow says is in the works.
It added that the West was "artificially" raising tensions by claiming Russia is planning an invasion.
The latest reports come as tensions have been on a continuous rise, after Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula in 2014.
Both the U.S. and its allies have been critical of the annexation, with President Joe Biden in February, reiterated that the U.S. "does not and will never recognize Russia's purported annexation of the peninsula".

Five people are dead,.. and more than 40 others injured, after an SUV slammed through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday.

Witnesses estimate that the SUV was driving at around 60 kilometers per hour when it hit the crowd parading down the street.
Officers had fired shots at the vehicle in an attempt to stop it, as the suspect crashed through street barriers.
The car in question was recovered 32 kilometers west of Milwaukee.

The Taliban have now banned women from appearing in television dramas in Afghanistan under the group's new media restrictions.
According to government guidelines issued to broadcasters on Sunday, all dramas, soap operas and entertainment shows featuring women are now prohibited.
Among the latest guidelines, female news presenters must now wear headscarves on screens, while men on screen must wear "proper clothes", although the guideline does not specify which types of clothes are considered "proper".
Rules also state that entertainment and comedy programs "should not be based on insulting others," nor "for the insult of human dignity and Islamic values."
Under the previous Taliban government, television was prohibited, as well as most other forms of media.
The latest rules also come as the Taliban mark 100 days since retaking power in the country.
