White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that the U.S. government is prepared to provide support to Ukraine, under certain conditions, as the country tries to emerge from a bloody power struggle that is still in flux.

Carney spoke after Ukraine's acting government issued an arrest warrant for President Viktor Yanukovych, accusing him of mass crimes against the protesters who stood up for months against his rule. Carney said that at this point, Yanukovych's whereabouts have not been confirmed but he is not "actively leading the country."

Carney said the Obama administration believes the Ukrainian parliament has lawfully elected a new speaker. The parliament's speaker, Oleksandr Turchinov, has been acting as the government's interim leader in the wake of the wave of the protests that prompted Yanukovich to flee the capital of Kiev.

The administration has already said that the International Monetary Fund is working on a package of assistance for Ukraine. But Carney said that the U.S. and other countries are prepared to offer additional support as the country "takes the reforms it needs."

"This support can complement an IMF program by helping to make reforms easier and by putting Ukraine in a position to invest more in health and education to help develop Ukraine's human capital and strengthen its social safety net," he said. "So, we would be working with international partners to complement an IMF program, going forward."

How many reporters asked Baghdad Bob Jay about Obama's off mic comment to Putin a few years ago, that he will see what he can do after the election in gutting missile defense and disarming America and gutting our military. Oh wait...

In order to pay for this aid, won't comrade Obama have to make deeper cuts in the military? :thud:

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

well, his fellow traveller, Frau Pelosi, did say "the cupboard is bare," so even that may not be an option.
