Kirby: Russia has a powerful military that can be used not only in Ukraine at John Kirby's home during a briefing.
Kirby was responding to a request for comment on the state of Russia's military power and its possible weakening amid the operation in Ukraine.
“They faced many problems < …>, but it is still a very large and powerful army. [President Vladimir] Putin still has an extremely large military potential at his disposal, which can be used not only in Ukraine, but potentially elsewhere,” — he said.
The coordinator at the National Security Council also recalled that the US Department of Defense had described Russia as an “extraordinary threat.” “Obviously they have the military capability to do a lot of damage,” — added by Kirby.
The material is being supplemented.
