It was reported that Vice President Kamala Harris indicated on Wednesday that the Biden administration will stick to its current policy regime regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin following his invasion of Ukraine despite its lack of success in deterring him.

The VP made her comments in an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie Wednesday morning following President Joe Biden’s first formal State of the Union Address after the host pressed Harris on whether the administration was considering a change in tactics since, despite the imposition of heavy sanctions by the U.S., NATO allies, and other Western nations, Russia’s full-scale assault on Ukraine was ongoing.

“So what else do we have to throw at this when Putin so far is undeterred?” Guthrie asked.

“Well, we are going to continue to do what we’ve done,” Harris replied.

“For example, in the sanctions, it’s been sanctions against their financial institutions, against their oligarchs, where we are targeting their mansions and their jets,” Harris continued.

“What we’re going to continue to do is stand firm with our allies in terms of reassessing what we are doing with sanctions,” she said.

Guthrie continued to press Harris on the possibility that the United States might implement sanctions on Russia’s energy sector — or stop buying oil and gas from Russia altogether — in an effort to cut off any income from selling such products and further isolate the nation from the west.

Guthrie noted that the best way to hit Putin “where it hurts” was to target the oil and gas sector, adding, “Some senators agree, Republican and Democrat — Senator Joe Manchin mentioned for example that the U.S. is still currently buying approximately 600,000 barrels of crude and other petroleum products every single day. Is that on the table? Is that something that the administration would continue — would consider in terms of further sanctions, cutting off the oil and gas part of the economy for Russia?”

“Well, as you know, on this issue, for example, we applaud Germany in terms of what it has done as it relates to Nord Stream 2,” Harris replied, going on to praise Germany for its refusal to certify the new pipeline while leaving out the part that the pipeline was only going to be completed in the first place because Biden allowed U.S. sanctions against it put in place by former President Donald Trump to expire shortly after he took office.

Biden also canceled the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada after Trump approved it following more than a decade’s worth of delay and billions spent by firms to begin it.
