The US Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas Greenfield, announced that the United States is considering taking measures, including military, against Russia in the event of an escalation over Ukraine.

In a statement to Moldovan television, the US envoy said, in response to a question whether Washington was considering taking military measures against Russia, in addition to economic sanctions: “Of course. We have indicated that we do not rule out anything regarding our response.”

Greenfield recalled that the United States had been working with Ukraine since 2014, noting that the United States had provided Kiev with $2.7 billion in military support.

And she continued: “A little while ago, during the visit of Foreign Minister (Anthony) Blinken to Ukraine, we announced additional funding, and we will continue to supply the Ukrainians with equipment.”

The United States is also helping Ukraine with advice, she added.

US President Joe Biden had threatened Russia with “disaster” and “unprecedented sanctions” if it attacked Ukraine, but Moscow has repeatedly denied having such plans.
