U.S. President Obama: Crimea not ‘done deal’ as not recognized internationally

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that Russia’s annexation of Crimea was not a “done deal” as it has not been recognized by the international community.

He added that Washington was concerned about the possibility of further Russian encroachment into Ukraine.

“It is up to Russia to act responsibly and show itself once again to be willing to abide by international norms and … if it fails to do so, there will be some costs,” he said at the end of a nuclear security summit in The Hague.

He said additional sanctions would hurt Russia, but also the economies of other countries.

What happened to our 1994 nuclear disarmament agreement to help defend Ukraine?

What happened to don’t worry, “our sanctions can get ugly quickly” and can ratchet up to hurt them?

Ok, a few questions.. How is it not over? The Ukraine military was forced to lead its own bases in it own country.  They left behind equipment, naval vessels, and THEIR bases.

The Russian military is in place and has raised their flags prominently.

What will happen in a few months in Eastern Ukraine? Bulgaria? Other Non NATO provinces with a Russian majority?

When is the next Olympics?
