Republican leaders in the House of Representatives made a rare show of support for President Barack Obama earlier on Wednesday, saying they would work with the White House to address the crisis in Ukraine. Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the House would soon consider a $1 billion loan guarantee package for Ukraine, which the administration has called for, and look at measures to “put significant pressure on Russia to stop the flagrant aggression to its neighbor.” “The world community should stand united against this invasion, America should be leading and we’ll vote soon on legislation to aid the Ukrainian people,” he told reporters.
