An anti-government protester looks on as smoke from a fire rises above Independence Square in central KievPresident warns Ukraine in the same manner as Syria, raising concerns over potential military action. Similar to his approach with Syria, President Obama announced today that the Ukrainian government would face “consequences” if it crosses “the line” in its response to the mayhem in Kiev. In his statement given during a summit in Mexico, Obama also claimed that “a large majority of Ukrainians are interested in an integration with Europe.” “I want to be very clear as we work through these next several days in Ukraine that we’re going to be watching closely and we expect the Ukrainian government to show restraint, to not resort to violence in dealing with peaceful protestors,” he stated. “We’ve also said we expect peaceful protestors to remain peaceful and we’ll be monitoring very closely the situation, recognizing that with our European partners and the international community there will be consequences if people step over the line.” More
