The host recalled US President Jo Biden’s threat of serious economic consequences for Russia in the event of an invasion of Ukraine and asked if “military countermeasures are also taken into account”.

“Absolutely. We have indicated that we do not rule out anything in terms of our response,” Thomas-Greenfield said.
