He's taking it up a notch

Kremlin version of Thursday's Obama-Putin phone call --

Vladimir Putin, in particular, noted that which came as a result of anti-constitutional coup that does not have a national mandate, the current Ukrainian leadership imposes the Eastern and Southeastern regions and Crimea is illegitimate decision.

It's a Google translate from the Russian which for now is the only version available. But the intended meaning is clear. Putin didn't just talk about Crimea having an illegitimate government. He talked about all of eastern and southern Ukraine as such.

The White House staff better not make any big weekend plans.
