WASHINGTONU.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in a call Monday to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, urged Russia to pull back its forces from Ukraine and to support the "immediate deployment" of international monitors.
Mr. Biden, according to a summary of the call released by the White House, also told Mr. Medvedev that Russia needs to start a "meaningful political dialogue" with the Ukrainian government.
Mr. Biden's call with the Russian prime minister follows a 90-minute discussion Saturday between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin and underscores the Obama administration's efforts to find a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian unrest.
Obama administration officials said over the weekend that the U.S. was considering a range of penalties, including sanctions, to punish Russia for seizing territory in Ukraine's Crimea region. The U.S. also has discussed with Russia and international partners the possibility of deploying international observers to help quell unrest in Ukraine.

Maybe they could threaten to sign all of Russia up for Obamacare.
Hope and change, baby.
Hope and change.
Got that right.
This is a joke right..send the idiot after the most powerful communist in the world..Bwahahahahahahahaha..
Mr. Putin, just do whatever the heck you want in that area of the world, the U.S. won’t stop you. Shoot, Obamdumba, probably is just playin’ with his citizens and the media. Most likely he is all in with your occupation of the Ukraine and with any other former satellites you desire.
You did know that, right, Mr. Putin? Obama IS the Soviet Candidate.
Or maybe Kerry can get the Ruskies to sign a nonaggression pact. /S
The U.S. also has discussed with Russia and international partners the possibility of deploying international observers to help quell unrest in Ukraine.
Not even in the realm of possibility. Even the Washington Post has finally called Obama’s foreign policy a “fantasy”.
I see Russians, sir.
Well ok, then.
Did he pound his fists and look like a Klingon?
because if he didn’t the court jester isn’t really serious ;/
Well if BIDEN asks them, they’ll HAVE to comply...
hes rumored to have gone so far as to have pointed one of Barrys PENS at them...
Putin better watch out, Biden will fire off a couple of warning shots from his 4-10 shotgun.
I thought everyone understood that in international words without muscle are like peeing into the wind - the wordy one gets wet and stinky.
correction: ...international diplomacy words without muscle...
They should listen. The Ukraine is Joe’s favorite African country.
didn’t Obama promise Putin that Obama would be more “flexible” once he was re-elected. he huffed and he puffed and he hoped no one would notice that he didn’t really intend to do anything.
