Obama Rules Out Military Intervention in Ukraine


President Barack Obama on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of the United States taking military action in Ukraine.

“We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine,” Obama said in an interview, adding, “I think even the Ukrainians would acknowledge, for us to engage Russia militarily would not be appropriate and wouldn’t be good for Ukraine, either.”
