How do you solve a problem like Russia?
The New York Times’ Peter Baker explains: Pressure Rising as Obama Works to Rein in Russia. Steven Greenhouse there said, “Many folks say Obama needs to get Putin to pull back in Ukraine. I keep wondering how exactly can Obama/U.S. do that.” Jim Roberts at Mashable added: “Interesting tidbit: Angela Merkel says after talking with #Putin, he doesn’t seem to be in touch with reality.”
Over at Quartz, Jason Karaian explains that The markets are punishing Russia more swiftly than diplomats ever could. Christopher Mims there said, “Russia only just vanquished double-digit inflation. Putin's little expedition could cost his country dearly.”
