Obama's hope in check after Geneva deal

US President Barack Obama delivers remarks from the Brady Press Room at the White House in Washington, DC, April 17, 2014President Barack Obama had a curt assessment of his own administration’s latest “breakthrough” in its tangled diplomacy with Vladimir Putin: buyer beware. US officials never held out much hope for talks in Geneva aimed at stemming the chaos in eastern Ukraine that Obama had blamed on Russian support for separatist rebels. But on the face of it, the unexpected agreement between Russia, Ukraine, the EU and United States appeared to address the immediate flashpoints of the latest brushfire in the wider Ukraine crisis. Washington hopes for a window to allow the Ukrainian election to take place next month, and to permit Kiev to carry out promised decentralization reforms that would grant more autonomy to eastern Ukraine, where people lean closer to Russia.
