Obama again puts Russian aggression in Ukraine on par with threats from Ebola virus, ISIL

The United States and Japan oppose Russia's aggression against Ukraine, U.S. President Barack Obama said during a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday.

"We are two global partners that stand together for security and human dignity around the world – opposing Russia's aggression against Ukraine, providing relief to innocent civilians threatened by ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant], combating Ebola and promoting global health, and now offering help to the people of Nepal, who are in our prayers today," Obama told journalists.

Earlier, speaking at the G20 summit in Brisbane, Australia, Obama said: "We're leading in dealing with Ebola in West Africa and in opposing Russia's aggression against Ukraine, which is a threat to the world, as we saw in the appalling shoot-down of MH17."
