President Barack Obama said Wednesday that Russian leaders “miscalculated” if they believed that an incursion into Ukraine would divide the United States and its European allies. If anyone in Russian leadership thought the world would not care about their actions in Ukraine, or that they could drive a wedge between the European Union and the United States, they clearly miscalculated,” Obama said after a meeting between with European Union leaders in Brussels. Asked about the impact of sanctions around the world, Obama acknowledged that further action would likely have significant effects on countries in Europe.
