  1. Leaders Converge on Europe to Discuss Ukraine

    G7 leaders, including President Obama, will meet in Brussels on Wednesday, with the situation in Ukraine and relations with the Putin administration expected to dominate the conversation. A G8 meeting was scheduled to take place in Sochi but was canceled in March following Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The same issues will be discussed elsewhere in the city at a meeting of the NATO defense ministers. In a clear sign of support for Ukraine, President Obama will attend a ceremony in Poland on Tuesday to honor a pro-Kiev Crimean leader. He is also expected to meet Ukraine’s newly elected president.
