Biden Pushed for Tougher Action on Russian in East Europe

Two Baltic leaders echoed calls from Poland and Estonia for a more aggressive U.S. stance toward Russia, as Vice President Joe Biden wrapped up a two-day trip to countries on the front line of Ukrainian turmoil.

Biden met today in Lithuania with Latvian President Andris Berzins and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite during a visit aimed at assuring North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies that the U.S. will support them against any attempt by Russia to encroach on their territory. Biden returns to Washington later today.
