Putin’s attacks on Ukraine energy grid will not work says Blinken

Russian President Vladimir Putin has focused his "fire and ire" on Ukraine's civilian population, bombing more than a third of Ukraine's energy system - water and electricity supply - in a strategy that will not work, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Wednesday (November 30). "These are President Putin's new targets. He's hitting them hard," Blinken said after a NATO meeting in Bucharest. "His strategy has not, and will not, work." NATO allies are also concerned about China's military buildup and its cooperation with Russia, Blinken said. Chinese policies of concern to NATO included "its use of disinformation, its rapid, opaque military buildup, including its cooperation with Russia," he told a news conference. "But we also remain committed to maintaining a constructive dialogue with China wherever we can and we welcome opportunities to work together on common challenges."
