Nuland: NATO allies to respond to Russia with high level of impact, economic measures in case of expansion of aggression against Ukraine

KYIV. Dec 1 (Interfax-Ukraine) – NATO allies stand in solidarity with Ukraine and will respond to Russia with a high level of impact and economic measures in case of expansion of aggression, U.S. Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has said.

"It is not only the United States that supports you in your quest for a peaceful European reform transition, all NATO allies stand in solidarity with Ukraine today, and making clear that we are resolute in supporting your independence, and we also resolute in sending a message to Moscow that if it moves again to internally destabilizing Ukraine or using troops to enter the country is met with a high impact, economic measures that we have not used before – from all of us," Nuland said at Kyiv Security Forum on Wednesday.

She said the United States made it clear that if Russia again becomes an international aggressor, it will pay a high price for this, not only in relations with us, but also in relations with the democratic world.
