Obama: EU-US united in isolating Russia

  

In his first visit to Brussels since he took office in 2009, US President Barack Obama spoke about the Ukrainian crisis and warned Russian President Vladimir Putin of “growing consequences for the Russian economy” over its annexation of the Crimean peninsula earlier this month.

“If anyone in the Russian leadership thought that the world wouldn't care about their actions in Ukraine, or that they could drive a wedge between the EU and the US, they clearly miscalculated.” Obama said. “Russia stands alone”, he added.
