Obama: Russia is 'on the wrong side of history' in Ukraine
The world believes Russia's operations on Ukraine's territory violate international law, U.S. President Barack Obama said.
"The world is largely united in recognizing that the steps Russia has taken are a violation of Ukraine's sovereignty, their territorial integrity – that they're a violation of international law," Obama said at the White House on Monday.
The U.S. President stressed that Russia is 'on the wrong side of history' in Ukraine.
Obama called on U.S. Congress to adopt an assistance package to the Ukrainian government as a 'first order of business.'
