Vice President Kamala Harris Admits 'Possibility of Real War Coming' in Europe

Threat of war in Europe is a 'real possibility' says Kamala Harris

MUNICH - Acknowledging “ the real possibility of war,” Vice President Kamala Harris wrapped up a weekend of outreach to European abettors with a drive to bolster the West’s resoluteness in defying Moscow with crippling warrants as decreasingly dire signs suggest Russia's Vladimir Putin plans to order an irruption of Ukraine. 

 In a burst of tactfulness at the periodic Munich Security Conference, Harris tried to make the case to American abettors that fleetly raising pressures on the Ukraine-Russian border meant European security was under “ direct trouble” and there should be unified support for profitable penalties if the Kremlin invades its neighbor. 

“We ’re talking about the eventuality for war in Europe. I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we ’re talking about,” Harris told journalists before her return to Washington on Sunday evening. Europe, she said, might be at its most dangerous moment since the end of World War II. 

 “It's been over 70 times, and through those 70 times. there has been peace and security,"she said."We're talking about the real possibility of war in Europe.” President Joe Biden met with his public security platoon latterly Sunday in Washington to bandy the unfolding developments. Harris shared while flying back from Germany. Before leaving Munich, Harris and her platoon briefed them about her meetings and exchanges at the conference. 

Joe Biden is listed to hold a virtual meeting with Group of Seven leaders on Thursday to bandy Ukraine, and his top diplomat, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, intends to meet in Europe with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov this coming week — addresses that the American says will be scrapped if Moscow has raided. In Ukraine, shelling on Sunday escalated in and around home held by Russia- backed revolutionists, secessionists vacated thousands of women and children and Putin oversaw tests of nuclear-able dumdums. Putin has concentrated further than Russia forces at the border. 

During a series of choreographed meetings and a major address at the security conference, Harris told global leaders they were at a “ defining” and “ decisive” moment for the world. Harris met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, the leaders of the three Baltic nations, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. 

Biden transferred Harris to Germany with straightforward marching orders to amplify his concern that a Russian irruption was largely likely and make clear to European abettors that they must be ready to put the toughest warrants Moscow has ever seen. Harris told journalists that an irruption — and posterior warrants on Russia — would probably have costs for Americans, as well. 

 “When America stands for principles, and all of the effects that we hold dear, it requires occasionally for us to put ourselves out there in a way that perhaps we will dodge some cost,” Harris said. “ In this situation, that may relate to energy costs.” 

The vice chairman's appearance in Munich was largely overshadowed by Biden’s protestation from the White House late Friday that he was “ convinced” that Putin had decided to foray. And her communication of concinnity in Europe in the face of Russian aggression was overhauled by Zelenskyy. Soon after meeting with Harris on Saturday, he used his appearance at the conference to question why theU.S. and Europe were staying to put warrants against Russia. 

“What are you staying for?” Zelenskyy asked of Western leaders. He said the warrants that targeted Russia after Ukraine’s frugality collapses and “ corridor of our country will be enthralled” would give little comfort. 

Harris said she would n’t “ alternate conjecture” Zelenskyy’s “ solicitations for his country” and she stood by theU.S. decision to hold off on preemptive warrants. “ The purpose of the warrants has always been and continues to be deterrence,” she said. 

Blinken also told NBC's “ Meet the Press” that “ as soon as you spark the warrants, of course, any truculent effect they may have is gone, they get absorbed by President Putin and he moves on.” Zelenskyy also repeated Ukraine’s desire to join the NATO indeed as Putin demands guarantees from theU.S. and the alliance of that not ever passing. Harris, meantime, heard pleas to increaseU.S. troop situations from Baltic leaders who worry their countries could be the coming bones that Russia sets its eyes on. 

Lithuania's chairman, Gitanas Nauseda, prompted theU.S., which has bolstered its colors presence in the Baltics in recent weeks, to do indeed more and produce a “ endless presence” in Lithuania. Presently, theU.S. deploys a small contingent of colors to the country on a rotational base. 

Estonia's high minister, Kaja Kallas, echoed that call. “ We've lost our independence to Russia formerly, and we do n’t want it to be again,” she said.  Harris offered no pledges, though she prognosticated in her address at the conference that theU.S. “ will further support our NATO Abettors on the eastern hand” if Russia invades Ukraine.
