Antony Blinken also responded to criticism from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who recently suggested that the West impose sanctions on Russia preemptively. “The purpose of these sanctions is to prevent Russian aggression,” he told CNN.

Deter Putin at all costs

“Everything we do, including working out together with Europe massive consequences for Russia, is designed to factor into (Russian) President Vladimir Putin’s calculations and to prevent and deter him from launching aggression, even if we continue our diplomatic efforts at the same time.” Imposed now, such sanctions “would lose their deterrent effect,” he added.

In an interview at Washington Post published Thursday, Volodymyr Zelensky had protested against the fact that the Western sanctions were envisaged only in the event of aggression. “Why do you support sanctions against Russia in case there is an invasion of Ukraine? Why do you need sanctions when we will have lost all the territory of Ukraine?”.
