Blinken: Ukrainian spirit unbreakable - so is our commitment to support

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has stated that the spirit of the Ukrainian people is unbreakable, so is the U.S. commitment to support Ukraine in its fight for own independence and democratic principles.

He said this at a press conference in Bangkok on Thursday, Ukrinform reports with reference to the U.S. Department of State.

“Having failed to seize Ukraine by force, President Putin seems to believe that plunging Ukrainians into darkness, cutting off their water, freezing them to death will break their will,” Blinken said.

He noted that Putin miscalculated and for any who doubt the resolve of the Ukrainians, just take a look at the liberated people in Kherson – dancing in the streets, embracing Ukrainian soldiers, tearing down Russian propaganda posters after months of Russian repression.

“Russia’s new strategy, like it’s old strategy, will fail. Ukrainian spirit is unbreakable; so is our commitment to supporting Ukraine,” Blinken said.

As reported by Ukrinform, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (ASEAN) summit is being held in Bangkok on Thursday. The issue of Russian aggression against Ukraine, its impact on the security situation, as well as on food security in the world is one of the separate topics of discussion.
