Sullivan told NBC’s Meet the Press program, “If Russia crosses that line, there will be catastrophic consequences for Russia. The United States will respond decisively.”

Sullivan did not describe the nature of the planned US response, but said the United States had privately “explained more precisely what that would mean” to Moscow.

He added that the United States has been in frequent, direct contact with Russia, including in recent days, to discuss the situation in Ukraine and Putin’s actions and threats.

Sullivan continued, “Putin remains determined … to wipe out the Ukrainian people, who he believes have no right to exist.

“So he’s going to keep coming and we need to keep coming with guns, ammunition, intelligence and all the support we can provide.”

His comments followed the Russian president’s nuclear threat on Wednesday after he said Moscow would use all weapons to defend its territory.

In a chilling warning to the West, the dictator who pushed through the nationwide mobilization said: “This is not a bluff.”

Meanwhile, the country’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, addressing the UN General Assembly on Saturday, said Ukraine’s annexed regions would be protected as Russian territory.

Referendums in the occupied Ukrainian territories continued for a third day on Sunday.

Ukraine and its allies have dismissed the referenda as a sham to justify an escalation of the war and a mobilization offensive by Moscow after recent battlefield losses.

US President Joe Biden, in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, accused Putin of making “overt nuclear threats against Europe” that recklessly flout nuclear non-proliferation responsibilities.

British Prime Minister Liz Truss said Britain and its allies should ignore threats from Putin, who made what she called a strategic mistake by not expecting the strength of the West’s response.

She told CNN in an interview that aired on Sunday: “We shouldn’t listen to his saber-rattling and bogus threats.

“Instead, we must continue to impose sanctions on Russia and continue to support the Ukrainians.”
