US has no strategy of ‘regime change’ in Russia, Blinken says

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has clarified Biden’s comments about Putin, adding that the US has no strategy of “regime change” for Russia.

Russia has criticised the US president’s remarks in Poland that Putin “cannot remain in power”.

“I think the president, the White House, made the point last night that, quite simply, President Putin cannot be empowered to wage war or engage in aggression against Ukraine or anyone else,” Blinken said during a visit to Jerusalem on Sunday.

“As you know, and as you have heard us say repeatedly, we do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia – or anywhere else, for that matter.”
