State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki addressed the United States’ position towards Ukraine Tuesday, saying all policy options, including sanctions, were on the table.
“But obviously getting back into a conversation with Europe and with the IMF and bringing, of course, justice and dignity to the people of Ukraine is what we were — what our strong message was on the ground. All policy options, including sanctions, are on the table, in our view. But obviously, that still is being evaluated,” Psaki said.
When further pressed on what kind of sanctions would be imposed on Ukraine, Psaki refused to get into specifics, saying only, “We’re considering policy options. There obviously hasn’t been a decision made. Sanctions are included, but I’m not going to outline more specifics.”
Kerry and Obama are lobbying against sanctions on Iran… which is engaged in terrorism around the world, is developing nuclear weapons and recently threatened the United States again.
But Obama and Kerry are pivoting to the Ukraine.
