The Daily Telegraph quotes Atlantic Council Executive VP Damon Wilson on President Obama’s reaction to the crisis in Ukraine:
Damon Wilson, the executive vice president of the Atlantic Council, who worked on White House policy toward Ukraine during the Orange Revolution of 2004, said that President Barack Obama had worked hard to marshal this consensus.
“There’s been a toughening of spines. I don’t think I’ve seen Obama on the phone with as many leaders in as compact an amount of time. It’s not just a slew of Nato allies: he spoke yesterday with the presidents of Kazakhstan and China.”
Mr Wilson added: “This is one of the most concerted efforts that I’ve seen from the administration on a foreign policy matter.”
