Obama to speak on Ukraine amid growing US concernFebruary 28, 2014 @ 2:56 pm
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will deliver a statement about the situation in Ukraine.
The White House says Obama will speak in the briefing room of the White House at 4:45 p.m. EST.
Obama's statement comes as his administration is expressing growing concern over Russian intentions in Ukraine. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a blunt warning Friday to Moscow against military moves in the country's southern Crimea region that could further inflame tensions.
Ukraine's acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop "provocations" in Crimea and pull back military forces from the peninsula.
Turchynov stepped in as president after Viktor Yanukovych fled Kiev last weekend.
