U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has expressed confidence that a sovereign and independent Ukraine will endure in the war unleashed by Russia.
The relevant statement was made by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Twitter, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“We know that a sovereign and independent Ukraine will endure. And we know that in supporting Ukraine we’re also defending the principles of sovereignty and independence that are foundational to global peace and security,” Blinken wrote.
Blinken also added that, having launched this brutal war, President Putin only reinforced Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence.
“President Putin launched this brutal and unprovoked war thinking he could eliminate Ukraine as an independent country and divide NATO. Instead, he’s only reinforced Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence. NATO is stronger, more capable, more unified than ever,” Blinken noted.
A reminder that, on May 15, 2022, at a meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba in Berlin, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed the details of the latest defense aid tranche to Ukraine.
