Obama says Russia threats 'out of weakness'

US President Barack Obama holds a press conference at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague on March 25, 2014 at the end of the Nuclear Security SummitRussia’s attitude to its neighbours is a sign of weakness, US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday after the Kremlin took control of the Crimea region from Ukraine. “Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbours, not out of strength but out of weakness,” Obama told journalists after a nuclear security summit in The Hague. Obama said that while the US also has influence over its neighbours, “We generally don’t need to invade them in order to have a strong cooperative relationship with them.” “The fact that Russia felt to go in militarily and lay bare these violations of international law indicates less influence, not more,” Obama said after troops loyal to Moscow took over the Crimea peninsula, in what Russia said was a move to protect Russian speakers.
