U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has started another round of talks with key European allies in Berlin to cement a common strategy in the face of a buildup of Russian troops on its border with Ukraine that many fear is a prelude to an attack at 'very short notice.'

Blinken will meet on January 20 with his counterparts from Germany, France, and the United Kingdom before heading to Geneva for talks the next day with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Alarms have been sounding throughout Western capitals about the danger of a new major conflict after Russia massed an estimated 127,000 troops along Ukraine's borders and deployed a sizable force in Belarus for what Moscow and Minsk say will be snap military exercises.
