US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin made an unexpected reservation – he hopes that the Soviet Union (Russia) will not attack Ukraine. Writes about it Reuters.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken called on Moscow to withdraw its troops from the border with Ukraine, saying that a Russian invasion would provoke sanctions that would hit Moscow harder than any imposed so far.
Journalists asked the head of the Pentagon if the consequences for Russia would be purely economic, to which Austin replied that “best methods” would be used. At the same time, he made a funny slip of the tongue about Russia.
“Everything we do will be done as part of the international community. At best, we will not see the Soviet Union invade Ukraine.”Austin said, accidentally calling Russia the former Soviet Union.
