Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the Russia-Ukraine War

From a Wall Street Journal report:

Secretary of State Antony Blinken sat down with WSJ Editor in Chief Matt Murray at the WSJ CEO Council Summit to reflect on U.S. global concerns, most notably the country’s relationship with Ukraine and where things stand in its war with Russia as the one-year anniversary of the conflict draws near. Here is a condensed and edited excerpt of their conversation.

Matt Murray: We reported today that the U.S. has modified the Himars [rocket launchers the U.S. sent to Ukraine] a bit to prevent some long-range firing. How concerned in general are you about the escalation risk at this point?
