AP/Evan Vucci MOSCOW, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. counterpart Barack Obama discussed in detail different aspects of an extraordinary situation in Ukraine in a telephone conversation, the Kremlin press service reported on Sunday.

Putin stated about real threats to life and health of Russian citizens and numerous compatriots living in the country. In reply to Obamas concern voiced over plans on possible use of Russian armed forces in Ukraine Putin noted provocative and criminal actions by ultra-nationalistic elements that are actually encouraged by current authorities in Kiev. The United States initiated the telephone conversation.
I wonder how you translate “I’m flexible” from Obonics to Russian.
Apparently Obama wasn't too concerned either as he decided not to go to the briefing on the events in the Ukraine. That's a Community Organizer for you.
"I can put both my feet behind my head - wanna see? I'm always open for love and adoration, just ask Reggie Love."
Putin’s defense of Russia’s actions sounds the same as Hitler’s claim - to “protect” ethnic Germans - in his earliest invasions leading to WWII.
It sounds more like Reagan's invasion of Grenada.
The organizer is over his head when it comes to foreign policy. He puts duds in those positions, like The “cow” Clinton, “lurch” Kerry, and “deadwood” Nagel. What do you expect when they can’t define our role in the world.
He isn’t just over his head, he is in Putin’s pocket.
Not the first time Putin has made a Obama a punk and it won’t be the last.
Putin’s Russia has won the Winter Olympics and now Vlad has won his diamond-shaped medal - Crimea.
Russia won’t let the gas lines become a risk.
“It sounds more like Reagan’s invasion of Grenada.”
Grenada had none of the historical context and prior treaty agreement similarities and near similarities that Crimea has to Russia as the Sudentenland had to Germany.
