Donald Trump declared on ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos that Vladimir Putin has no intention of invading Ukraine while also distancing himself from the Republican platform changes softening their position on Ukraine.
"[Putin]'s not going to go into Ukraine. Just so you understand, he's not going to go into Ukraine," he insisted.
"You can mark it down, you can put it down, you can take it anywhere you want," he added.
Stephanopoulos gently pointed out that Putin is already there.
"Well, he's there in a certain way but I'm not there, you have Obama there. And frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under Obama. With all of the strength that you're talking about, and all of the power of NATO," Trump replied.

He then went on to say that his understanding is that the people of Crimea want to be annexed by Russia.Read the rest of the story HERE an follow a link to a related story below:
