Secretary of State Antony Blinken during an interview on Sunday's episode of Meet the Press said that President Biden holds the position that Russia will face consequences if it behaves in a reckless or aggressive manner regarding Ukraine.
"There are more Russian forces massed on those [Ukraine's] borders than at any time since 2014 when Russia first invaded," Blinken said.
"And President Biden's been very clear about this: If Russia acts recklessly or aggressively, there will be costs, there will be consequences," Blinken noted. "He's equally clear-eyed about the proposition that when it comes to Russia, there are areas where our interests align or certainly overlap and we have an interest in working together, for example on arms control as we did in extending the START agreement," the Secretary of State said.
