Remarks at the OSCE Special Permanent Council Meeting on Ukraine. -Victoria Nuland Assistant Secretary, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs

 Vienna, Austria,March 3, 2014
Thank you Madam Chair.
My thanks to Ambassador Guldimann for being here, to the Ambassador for Ukraine, and to all the chairs of the OSCE institutions.
There should be no question where the United States stands on this matter. The President has been clear; we have also joined a statement at NATO of the 28 allies, we’ve also joined a G7 statement. We consider Russia’s actions in Ukraine to be a violation of international law and a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the independent nation of Ukraine, and a breach of Russia’s Helsinki Commitments and its UN obligations.
