Blinken: Russia Will Face ‘Massive Consequences’ if They Invade Ukraine

Secretary of State Blinken is now trying to back Biden’s play of talking tough about Russia regarding the situation with Ukraine.

Russia is amassing troops along the Ukraine border.

This is believed to be a leverage move, but there is always the possibility that Russia will follow through and invade.

If that happens, Blinken has promised “massive consequences.”

Talking Tough

Joe Biden did a virtual summit with Putin, with Ukraine being one of the subjects on the table.

Putin was so terrified by Biden’s threats that he reportedly sent an additional 10,000 troops to the Ukraine border.

Blinken is now mimicking Biden’s tough talk, characterizing the Russian activity as “reckless.”

He added, “They are equally resolute in their determination to stand against Russian aggression, to ideally deter it, prevent it.

“And we’ve made clear as well that there would be massive consequences if Russia commits renewed acts of aggression against Ukraine​.”

Exactly what those consequences will be remain to be seen.

Biden has already ruled out any military action, and Putin does not really care about sanctions.

Blinken continued, “I think what people need to understand is that Ukraine is important, and we are resolute in our commitment to its sovereignty, its territorial integrity.

“But there is something even bigger at stake here, and it’s the basic rules of the road of the international system, rules that say that one country can’t change the borders of another by force, one country can’t dictate to another country its choices, its decisions, and its foreign policy, with whom it will associate.

“That’s what Russia is purporting to assert.

“And if we let that go with impunity, then the entire system that provides for stability, prevents war from breaking out is in danger.”

The problem for the United States right now is that all of our adversaries/enemies are treating Biden and this entire administration like a joke.

The threats are deemed to be just that, threats, with no real consequence.
