WASHINGTON, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The USA does not intend to carry out a military intervention in the situation in Ukraine, President Barack Obama stated on Wednesday. The American leader said this in an interview with San Diego’s (CA) local division of NBC channel. He noted that there was a better way. Obama said that even Ukrainian would acknowledge that it would be improper for the USA to engage in combat actions with the Russians, since this would bring no good to Ukraine.
Barack Obama noted that the USA would mobilize all diplomatic resources to provide a solid international response to Russia’s actions, strongly opposed by Washington, in order to make it clear for Moscow that Ukraine should independently decide its future. The president also warned that the USA and its allies are ready to apply even more extreme economic measures against Russia than the sanctions already imposed by the West.
