Ukraine decides on how 'to defend itself': Blinken on Kremlin attack
When asked about the US stance if Ukraine chooses to strike deep within Russian territories, Blinken said these are decisions for Ukraine to make.
When asked about the suspected Ukranian drone attack against the Kremlin, US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, said he was aware of the reports without ascertaining its legitimacy: noting that he would take any piece of information from Moscow with a "very large shaker of salt".
"I’ve seen the reports. I can’t in any way validate them. I'd take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt," Blinken said during an interview with the Washington Post.
When asked about the US stance if Ukraine chooses to strike deep within Russian territories, Blinken answered: "These are decisions for Ukraine to make, about how it’s going to defend itself, about how it’s going to get its territory back, how it’s going to restore its territorial integrity and sovereignty."
