Blinken: Russian aggression would have massive consequences

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated on Tuesday that aggression from Russia towards Ukraine could happen "in very short order" and warned it would have "massive consequences."

Asked about a potential in-person meeting between US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Blinken noted there are "no plans" to organize such a summit at the moment and that Washington hopes to see some progress on the Ukraine issue before the two leaders meet.

Earlier in the day, Putin expressed concerns about the buildup of US and NATO troops in Ukraine and claimed Washington is to blame for the crisis in the country.
