Kamala Harris: NATO will strengthen its power in Eastern Europe if Russia invades Ukraine

US Vice President: We will not stop at economic measures, but we will strengthen the strength of our NATO allies on the eastern side in the event of an invasion.

Kamala Harris: threatens Russia with harsh economic sanctions.

US Vice President Kamala Harris has threatened to bolster NATO forces in Eastern Europe if Russia invades Ukraine, threatening Moscow with “severe and immediate” economic sanctions.

“We will not stop at economic measures, but we will strengthen the strength of our NATO allies on the eastern side,” she added in a speech she delivered at the Munich Security Conference, in the event of an invasion.

The United States asserts that Russia is preparing for an imminent attack on Ukraine as clashes escalate on the frontline with pro-Russian separatist regions.

For its part, the Kremlin denies any intention to attack Ukraine, but it demands security guarantees, including the withdrawal of NATO from Eastern Europe, which the West rejects.

She said Kamala Harris “Russia says that it is ready to negotiate, but at the same time it shortens the course of diplomacy,” noting that the process of troop withdrawal announced by the Kremlin “does not match reality.” Harris added that the United States has deployed about 6,000 additional military personnel in Romania, Poland and Germany.

She noted that “our forces will not participate in the fighting in Ukraine,” which is not a member of NATO, but “will defend every inch of NATO territory.”
