Obama leaves for Baltics today

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama leaves today for Estonia for meetings with Baltic leaders before traveling to Wales for a NATO summit.

As Obama heads for Russia's backyard, there's still criticism over the president's response to the crisis in eastern Ukraine and the West's inability to halt Russia's aggression.

Obama has so far resisted calls for the U.S. send in military support to help Ukrainian forces fight off pro-Russian forces.
