US President Barack Obama has said Russia is acting "not out of strength, but out of weakness" in Ukraine.

He also warned of the possibility of further sanctions against Russia if it encroached further into Ukraine.

Speaking in The Hague, Obama said he was encouraged by the willingness of EU countries to consider sanctions that could possibly hurt them as well.

Obama, who is attending a meeting of G7 countries, said the annexation was not a "done deal" as the international community had not recognised it, but admitted that "the facts on the ground are that the Russian military controls Crimea".
