“[U.S.] President [Barack Obama] has made it clear that there are
many different options, but that would be taken, needless to say, as not
just a violation of all notions of international law, but an
exceedingly dangerous action,” Kerry said at a press conference on
Tuesday, July 29, when asked what the United States is going to do if Russia
“It would wind up with, you know, the most severe possible kinds of
isolation and sanctions possible. And Germany, France, other countries
in Europe, would clearly join into that in ways that would have a
profound, profound impact on the Russian economy,” he said.
Kerry said that the United States was already helping Ukraine in the crisis situation.
