WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama spoke by telephone on Thursday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the ongoing situation in Ukraine, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.
Carney said the call, which happened while Obama was travelling on Air Force One from Austin, Texas, was "just to check in on the situation." He said more details would be provided later on Thursday.
