Obama at EU Summit: 'Russia Stands Alone'
President Obama delivered a speech at the EU Summit in Brussels, Belgium on Wednesday.
The president said he spoke with European leaders about Iran, eliminating Syria’s chemical weapons and the sanctions on Russia.
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.
