Blinken Asks Russia to Declare Not to Attack Ukraine
On Thursday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken urged Russia to withdraw and declare not to invade Ukraine.
If the country seeks peace, Blinken told the UN Security Council, “the Russian government can announce today without ambiguous reservation or evasion that Russia will not invade Ukraine.”
Blinken reiterated his warning that Russian troops are preparing to attack Ukraine “in the coming days”.
Russia would plan to come up with a rise for a raid in neighboring countries, for example, a fake or real attack with chemical weapons.
The US Secretary of State said earlier in the day that he had sent a letter to his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. In it, he proposes to meet in Europe next week to reach a diplomatic solution.
