The statement by US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield that the US is considering military action against Russia in the event of an escalation around Ukraine is irresponsible and harmful in the current situation. This was stated by RIA Novosti Senator Sergei Tsekov.
“This is an absolutely irresponsible, absolutely harmful statement in the current situation for everyone, and first of all for the United States itself,” the politician noted.
Recall, earlier, US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said that the States are considering the possibility of military measures against Russia in the event of an escalation of the situation in Ukraine. She also recalled that since 2014, the United States has allocated almost $2.7 billion to support the Ukrainian military, and stressed that the supply of equipment will continue.
Russia has recently been accused of allegedly preparing an invasion of Ukraine. In Moscow, these statements are rejected. The Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that Russia does not threaten anyone and is not going to attack.
