  1. Russia Seizes Crimean Naval Base as Obama Prepares for G-7 Talks

    Russian troops have launched their third attack in two days, reportedly overrunning a naval base in Feodosia, just as Western diplomats gear up to discuss a tough united front against the Kremlin. President Obama will spend the next few days in the Netherlands, where he has asked Group of 7 leaders to meet and develop a strong response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Obama wants to economically isolate Moscow, but European leaders are finding that a tough pill to swallow and administer as it puts their own economic interests at risk.
