Deployment further beefs up Russian military assets amid fears of an invasion
Russia said after the "very disappointing" security talks last week that it would wait for the U.S. and NATO to provide written responses to its demands before deciding how to move forward.
“It is up to the Russians to determine which path they are going to take, and the consequences are going to be severe if they don’t take the diplomatic path,” Psaki said.
The statement warned of an unspecified "stronger and certain reaction" if the United States adopts a confrontational stance.
