Global News published this video item, entitled “Allowing Russia to bully Ukraine would mean “open season” worldwide: Blinken” – below is their description.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday during a joint media availability with South Africa’s foreign minister that Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine “is not just an aggression against another country,” but is an attack on the “foundational principles of the international system.”

He said allowing Russia to bully Ukraine would be “open season” for any larger country looking to take over a smaller one.

Blinken also said Monday that China’s decision to cut dialogue with the United States on important issues like climate change would punish not just the U.S. but “the entire world, and especially the developing world.”
