The European Union threatened “massive” economic sanctions if Moscow attacks Ukraine, and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken rallied allies on Thursday ahead of last-ditch crisis talks with Russia aimed at preventing war.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Europe would respond to a new attack “with massive economic and financial sanctions. The transatlantic community stands firm in this. We do not accept Russia’s attempt to divide Europe into spheres of influence,” she said. “If attacks happen, we are prepared.”
Good luck with that, when Putin cuts off your gas supply.
