The US administration, together with its allies, is ready to organize additional economic costs for Russia. This will happen if Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, as well as the DPR and LPR, are included in the Russian Federation based on the results of referendums. This was stated by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday, September 23.
“We are ready to impose serious additional economic costs on Russia without delay … if they move forward,” the spokesman said. According to her, the United States does not recognize this territory as anything other than part of Ukraine, informs TASS.
“Together with our partners around the world, we will reject the fabricated results that Russia will announce,” Jean-Pierre said. She repeated the words of the US President, who believes that the ongoing referendums allegedly “are a flagrant violation of international law.” In addition, the spokeswoman promised to continue to actively support the people of Ukraine.
