“Putin tried to erase Ukraine from the map, erase its identity, subsume it back into Russia — that failed”

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has labeled Russia’s efforts to knock out power and infrastructure in Ukraine as “barbaric.”

“Putin tried to erase Ukraine from the map, erase its identity, subsume it back into Russia — that failed. Now, to your point, what he’s doing is trying to weaponize winter — turn out the lights, turn off the heat, put the Ukrainian people into darkness and cold just as they head into the winter months. This is indeed barbaric,” stated Antony Blinken during an interview with CNN.

The U.S. Secretary of State also stated that the U.S. government is working with Congress on an alternative form of a bill that would allow designating Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

“We’re working with Congress right now on legislation that would help us get around some of the challenges of using the State Sponsor of Terrorism designation,” said Blinken.
