Obama to show support for Ukraine's Yatseniuk in White House visit

KEY LARGO, Florida (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk at the White House on Wednesday, just days before a referendum on secession by Crimea, in a show of support for Ukrainian sovereignty, the White House said on Sunday.

The leaders will talk about "how to find a peaceful resolution to Russia's ongoing military intervention in Crimea that would respect Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity," the White House said.
