WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will meet with Ukraine’s prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk , at the White House Wednesday.

Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken said Sunday the president would consult with Yatsenyuk and that the meeting demonstrated U.S. support for Ukraine.

Blinken says the White House strategy is to mobilize the international community behind Ukraine, isolate Russia for its actions and reassure U.S. allies and partners.

Obama is in Key Largo, Florida, with his family for the weekend, but on Saturday spoke individually with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and French President Francois Hollande and collectively with the presidents of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
