Re "Putin claims his prize: Crimea" (Page A1, March 19): Russian President Vladimir Putin has annexed Crimea, and what is President Barack Obama's response? He has frozen the U.S. assets of 11 high-ranking persons in Russia who have no assets in the U.S.
Obama is the laughingstock of the world. Our relations with foreign countries is worse than it was when he entered office.
