U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Russia will receive a response from the U.S. and allies to any aggressive actions. And crossing the border of Ukraine will be regarded as a new invasion.
This was reported by RBC-Ukraine, citing a briefing by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
"We have made it clear: If any Russian armed forces cross the border with Ukraine, it will be regarded as a new invasion and will receive a swift, tough, unified response from the United States and our allies and partners," Blinken said after talks in Geneva.
He added that other variants of aggressive actions of Russia, besides mass use of armed forces, such as cyber-attacks, use of paramilitary formations, will also receive a corresponding response from the US and its allies.
