Albright: I Hope Obama ‘Does See the Value’ of Arming Ukraine

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said she hopes President Barack Obama see the “value” in supporting Ukrainians fighting well-armed Russian separatists.

Albright said, “I hope the president does see the value of letting the Ukrainians defend themselves, but I also understand the difficulty of making the decision. The Russians are clearly arming the separatists. In a way, I think we need to show more pictures of that to make that very clear. And we also want to act with our allies. So we are in the middle of a process, and there are people meeting in Minsk today. I think it’s very important as Chancellor Merkel and the president spoke together about our unity on this. That’s what, we have to be careful not to let Putin split the alliance.”
