ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – There continue to be conflicting reports about the seriousness of the situation between Russia and Ukraine.
So bottom line, how worried should the American public be about unfolding developments in Crimea?
KMOX News posed that question to Senator Claire McCaskill.
“Whenever you have a developed nation that has economic resources show a bold action against a sovereign nation, then obviously we should be worried,” she says.
She chides some Republicans in Washington for using this as a chance to slam President Obama’s response.
“When we have problems like this, this is when it’s really important that we come together and speak with one voice,” she says.
She says this is where alliances that Obama has worked to build in Europe should step in, adding that she doubts Americans would show any support of U.S. military involvement in Crimea.
