Obama, Putin 'exchange views' on Ukraine in phone call

(CNN) - President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin "exchanged views" on the need to quickly implement the political agreement reached on Friday in Ukraine and for all sides to "refrain from further violence."

A White House statement said the two leaders spoke by phone and also discussed Syria, including the "importance of efforts to advance a political solution" to the civil war.

    Let us implement the draft so everyone has skin in the game instead of the one percent. President Obama has saved thousands of lives because he believes in diplomacy instead of being a War Monger! !!! Put your life on the line you.....

    Putin is the KGB thug he always was and is.

    Of course he is, Bob. The comments from the right suggest that a great many basement bloggers would prefer living under Putin's control: FOX News propaganda showing its ugly side again for the world to see. Chalk it up to American media allowing foreigners to run the show in America.
