Obama to Russia: Stay out of Ukraine
President Barack Obama on Friday issued a blunt and direct warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin: stay out of Ukraine.So basically he's threatening to deprive them of his presence. Congratulations liberal/commie media, this is the milquetoast wussy you sold the world on.
If not, he said, there will be consequences — though he didn’t say what those might be.
“We are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the Russian Federation inside of Ukraine,” Obama said, speaking at the White House. “Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing.”
As a first sign of where things could go next, a senior administration official said the president is considering scrapping a planned trip to the G-8 summit to be held in Sochi in June. In September, he canceled a planned summit with Putin that would have been held as part of his trip to Russia for the G-20 conference.
“We are consulting with European partners and considering options,” the official said. “It is hard to see how we and other European leaders would attend the G-8 in Sochi if Russia is intervening in Ukraine.”~snip~
