Obama to Meet Congressional Leaders Today On Ukraine, Russia

The White House said President Obama would host House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for a meeting in the Oval Office, largely on his recent trip to Europe and in particular a discussion about Ukraine and Russia. Earlier this week, the White House said Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have agreed to meet again in hopes of brokering a deal to deescalate the situation — although no firm date has been set. Over the weekend, Kerry and Lavrov met in Paris for nearly four hours in a bid to lower tensions in the region. On Wednesday, the pair spoke by phone in what the State Department described as a "brief" conversation.
