Obama Urges World Leaders To Pressure Russia Out Of Crimea Through Legal And Diplomatic Actions
President Obama says there's no expectation that Russian forces will be dislodged from Crimea by force.
The president says Russian's annexation of Crimea isn't a done deal because the international community isn't recognizing it. But he says the fact is Russia's military is in control there.
He says it would be dishonest to say there's a simple resolution to what's taken place... and he's urging world leaders to use legal, diplomatic and political arguments to pressure Russia.
President Obama also says the build-up of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border appears to be an attempt to intimidate Ukraine but the troops are on Russian soil and it is Moscow's right to have troops there.
