Obama: 'Putin Is Not Fooling Anybody'
President Obama spoke about Ukraine moments ago in D.C., mentioning the United States’ pledged $1 billion in aid to Ukraine.
“Over the past several weeks, we've been working with our partners and with the IMF to build international support for a package that helps to stabilize Ukraine's economy,” President Obama said.
The package includes technical assistance to repair Ukraine’s economy and assistance for the country’s upcoming election.
President Obama charged that Russia’s Vladimir Putin is violating international law.
“President Putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations. But I don’t think that’s fooling anybody.”
