“If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends”
During his speech at the UN Security Council ministerial meeting, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered a tough message to Russia and world powers that “nuclear threats must stop immediately.”
“Defending Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is about much more than standing up for one nation’s right to choose its own path. It’s also about protecting an international order where no nation can redraw the borders of another by force,” stated Blinken on September 22, 2022.
“We see what that world looks like in the parts of Ukraine controlled by Russian forces. Wherever the Russian tide recedes, we discover the horror that’s left in its wake,” added U.S. Secretary of State.
