A question taken via the internet asked about the US and its likely relations with Russia. She replied that “our engagement with Russia in no way undermines our support for countries like Georgia, or the Baltics or the Balkans or anywhere else in Europe to be independent, free, make their own decisions and chart their own course without undo interference from Russia.”
 
Referring to the recent gas crisis she said, “we also are very troubled by using energy as a tool of intimidation.”
