He reiterated the United States’ commitment to send economic assistance to Ukraine and to isolate Russia by imposing “the most significant sanctions … since the end of the Cold War.”  

President Obama said, “If anyone in Russian leadership thought the world wouldn’t care about their actions in Ukraine, or that they could drive a wedge between the European Union and the United States, they clearly miscalculated.”

He maintained that there is still a way for Russia to work with Ukraine and the international community through diplomacy.
