Kerry likens Crimea 'fervor' to WWII build-up

US Secretary of State John Kerry delivers remarks as he hosts a town hall meeting with university students at the State Department on March 18, 2014 in WashingtonUS Secretary of State John Kerry warned Russia Tuesday against any military incursion into eastern Ukraine and likened the “nationalistic fervor” fueled by the Crimea crisis to the build-up before World War II. Any moves by Russia to march into eastern Ukraine “would be as egregious as any step that I can think of that would be taken by a country in today’s world, particularly by a country like Russia, where so much is at stake,” Kerry said. “Now I hope we don’t get there,” he told a gathering of students at the State Department, adding it “would be just an enormous challenge to the global community and it would require a response that is commensurate with the level of that challenge.” The top US diplomat said he did not want to start laying out options for any US or global response to any Russian move into eastern Ukraine “until we measure where we are” after Moscow absorbed Crimea into the Russian Federation.
