Blinken: The U.S. will continue to rally countries around the world to support Ukraine and to exert pressure on Russia

Sweden will soon join NATO, increasing the potency of the alliance. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said this in his year-end press conference at the State Department.

According to Blinken, the alliance has become even broader and stronger in 2023.

“This year, we added our 31st member of NATO – Finland. And Sweden will join soon, bringing even greater potency and capability to our defensive alliance,” Blinken said.

He also noted that Russia has become weaker militarily, economically and diplomatically. According to him, the U.S. will continue to rally countries around the world to support Ukraine and to exert pressure on Russia.
