According to a report by respected German publication Der Spiegel, Russia could launch an attack to invade Ukraine as early as next Wednesday.
NATO allies were briefed by American intelligence services of the possible impending invasion.
The German paper reports that the Secret Service, CIA, and Pentagon have all received credible information on the attack.
Daily Mail reports:
Der Speigel suggests that one possible U.S. tactic to scupper Russian plans is to make them public, including the invasion date.
The White House has publicly underscored that the U.S. does not know with certainty whether Putin is committed to an invasion.
However, U.S. officials said anew that Russia's buildup of offensive air, land and sea firepower near Ukraine has reached the point where it could invade on short notice.
Since it is unknown if the attack is actually imminent, the White House ordered Americans to leave Ukraine immediately on Friday. Several NATO allies including Britain, Canada, Norway and Denmark are asking their citizens to leave Ukraine as well. Non-NATO ally New Zealand also did the same.
As diplomatic options for averting war in Ukraine appeared to narrow, the White House said President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin would discuss the crisis by phone on Saturday from his Camp David presidential retreat.
He flew out of Washington on Friday afternoon, after his officials spent the day stepping up their warnings and more troops were dispatched the region.
He left it to his national security adviser to deliver the administration's dire warning to Americans: Get out immediately because the U.S. will not be coming back to rescue anyone.
"If a Russian attack on Ukraine precedes it is likely to begin with aerial bombing and missile attacks that could obviously kill civilians now with regard to their nationality," the Biden administration said. "A subsequent ground invasion would involve the onslaught of a massive force with virtually no notice communications to arrange a departure could be severed and commercial transit halted."
"No one would be able to count on air or rail or road departures once military action got under way," he added.
