On Sunday, Kamala Harris, the U.S. Vice President, said that the world was experiencing the ‘real possibility of war’ in Europe while saying America could suffer some cost if Moscow chooses to attack its neighbor Ukraine.
Admitting the real possibility of war, Harris covered a weekend of outreach to Western allies and partners with a push to strengthen Europe’s resolve in confronting Russia with crippling sanctions as growing terrible indications propose intentions of the Russian leader Vladimir Putin to direct an attack of a post-Soviet country of Ukraine.
At the Munich Security Conference (MSC) 2022 in Germany, the Vice-President sought to update American allies that the weakening circumstances at the Russia-Ukraine border indicated that Western security is being endangered. She added that swift and severe sanctions should be imposed for Moscow if it invades its western neighbor.
Before returning to D.C. late Sunday, Kamala Harris told media that they’re speaking about the possibility of war in the West, adding that she means “let’s certainly take a moment” to comprehend the consequence of what they’re talking about. Harris said Europe might be at its most insecure moment since the end of the Second World War. She said it had been more than seven decades, and through that period, there has been peace and security. But they’re speaking about the real potential of war in the West.
“defining and decisive moment”
The United States leader was to hold a summit with his National Security Team later on Feb. 20 to discuss the Ukraine crisis, and his top envoy, the US State Secretary Antony Blinken, plans to summit in Europe with Mr. Sergev Lavrov, Russia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, this following week, talks that the U.S. says will be scrapped if Russian Armed Force has attacked.
Sunday’s shelling in Ukraine escalated in and around the crisis zone held by rebels backed by Russia, separatist forces evacuated numerous children and women, and Mr. Putin superintended the nuclear missiles tests. The Kremlin has accumulated over 0.15 million troops along the border.
During a sequence of planned summits and significant address at the MSC 2022, the U.S. VP Harris told world leaders they’re at a ‘decisive and defining’ moment for the world. Moreover, she holds a meeting with Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian President, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Baltic nation’s leaders, and Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the Prime Minister of Greece.
The U.S. President sent Kamala Harris to Germany with candid marching orders to strengthen his concern that a Moscow attack was highly possible and make apparent to Western allies and partners that they must be prepared to impose the most stringent sanctions Russia has ever experienced. However, she told the media that an attack and following severe sanctions on Moscow would possibly have consequences for the U.S., as well.
