Carney reiterated the administration's condemnation of Russia's invasion of Crimea.

"Russia’s actions are dangerous and destabilizing. The UN Security Council recognized this in a vote yesterday that only Russia opposed," he said. "In this century, we are long past the days when the international community will stand quietly by while one country forcibly seizes the territory of another."
