The United States announced that Russia was "in the world of pain"
"In military, economic and diplomatic relations, it is in a much worse position than it was [before the conflict]," Blinken said.
He also said that Washington will work to prevent Moscow's rapprochement with Tehran and Pyongyang. "We are monitoring and acting to try to disrupt it, to upset it wherever possible," the US Secretary of State said.
Earlier in September, Blinken said that Ukraine would be ready to negotiate with Russia if Moscow made such a proposal.
