LONDON, England – On Sunday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken gave Russia two paths relative to Russia in Eastern Europe and Ukraine, stating: “ There’s a path of dialogue and diplomacy to try to resolve some of these differences and avoid a confrontation. The other path is confrontation and massive consequences for Russia if it renews its aggression on Ukraine. We’re about to test the proposition about which path president Putin’s prepared to take.”
On Monday, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office statement (FCDO) spokesperson, issued a statement on the US – Russia talks held in Geneva on January 10, 2022:
“The UK is working closely with our allies and partners, including the US, to make clear to Russia that we will not accept its campaign to subvert its democratic neighbours.
Russia must stop its acts of aggression and pursue a path of diplomacy.
We are united with our allies and partners in condemning Russia’s threatening behaviour and we will hold Russia to its Helsinki, Budapest and Minsk commitments.
Any military incursion into Ukraine would be a massive strategic mistake with severe costs.
“At the NATO-Russia Council on Wednesday the UK, along with our allies, will tell Russia that its military build-up on Ukraine’s borders is utterly unacceptable.”
