A Russian invasion of Ukraine could begin “any day now,” White House national-security adviser Jake Sullivan said Friday, telling reporters that Moscow is in position to mount a “major military action.” Sullivan said the U.S. isn’t saying Putin has made a final decision but still urged Americans in Ukraine to leave the country within 48 hours. Sullivan added a Russian invasion could happen during the Olympics, which are being held in Beijing. Stocks extended an afternoon decline, with the Dow DJIA, -1.43% falling more than 300 points at its session low. Traditional haven assets saw some buying interest, with Treasury yields pulling back and gold extending gains. Oil futures also extended a Friday rise.
