US Warns Russia Over “Provocative” Actions In Ukraine | Zero Hedge


US Warns Russia Over “Provocative” Actions In Ukraine | Zero Hedge.

As today’s actions by Russia have raised concerns and stirred flight-to-safety flows in the markets, The White House has decided to add its $0.02 worth:

  • *OBAMA AIDE EARNEST URGES ‘OUTSIDE ACTORS’ TO RESPECT UKRAINE TERRITORY
  • *EARNEST SAYS RUSSIA SHOULD AVOID `PROVOCATIVE’ ACTIONS
  • *U.S. WARNS RUSSIA TO RESPECT UKRAINE SOVEREIGNTY

Or else…? On the bright side, he did not say anything about crossed lines of color.

Via AP,

The White House is urging “outside actors” to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty, as neighboring Russia prepares for massive military exercises.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the U.S. is aware of Russia’s plans to launch the military maneuvers. While Russian officials said the exercises were unrelated to the tensions in Ukraine, these exercise will take place near the shared border between the countries.

Without specifically mentioning Russia, Earnest also called on others in the region to end “provocative rhetoric and actions.”

Russia has questioned the legitimacy of Ukraine’s acting government, which took charge after pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych fled after signing an agreement aimed at ending his country’s three-month political crisis.
