US Ambassador: Washington is examining three areas for continued pressure on Russia


“These areas include banning oil imports from Russia, declaring war crimes and helping to facilitate the delivery of Polish fighters to Ukraine,” the US ambassador to the United Nations told ABC News on Sunday.

He said US President Joe Biden was in talks with NATO allies about a possible ban on oil imports from Russia.

He continued: “The president is working with security advisers as well as his energy on how to deal with these issues.”

The US ambassador stated that the United States was in close consultation with the Polish government, as well as with other US NATO allies, to facilitate the transfer of Soviet-era fighter jets from Poland to Ukraine.

Greenfield added: “We have not objected in any way to the provision of these jets to Ukraine by the Polish government and we are considering the replacement of these fighters for Poland.”

In another part of his remarks, Greenfield said that the United States is working with its partners to gather and provide information on possible war crimes.

“Any attack on civilians is a war crime,” he said.
