Putin said new sanctions could cause complete severance of Russian-US ties – Kremlin aide 

Russian President was responding to Biden’s warning that Western countries will introduce massive economic and military sanctions if further escalation on the Ukrainian border takes place, Yury Ushakov said

MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a call with his US counterpart Joe Biden that relations between the two countries could be severed completely in the event the threatened “unprecedented sanctions” become a reality, Kremlin Aide Yury Ushakov told reporters on Friday.

Putin was responding to Biden’s warning that Western countries will introduce massive economic and military sanctions if further escalation on the Ukrainian border takes place, Ushakov said.

“Our president immediately responded to that by saying that if the West goes ahead to introduce abovementioned unprecedented sanctions, then all that could cause a total severance of relations between our countries and most serious damage will be done to Russia’s relations with the West in general,” the diplomat said.

Putin warned future generations will regard these moves as mistakes, the aide said. “There’s been a lot of these mistakes in past 30 years, and it’s preferable in this situation that they aren’t made any more,” Ushakov said.
