In Poland, Ukraine's western neighbor, Obama meets with Eastern European leaders – including Ukraine's President-elect Petro Poroshenko Wednesday – and is expected to address criticism he has not done enough to push back against Moscow after it annexed Crimea in March.The president's trip follows a speech at the U.S. Military Academy last week in which he argued that American leadership in the world should be exercised mainly by diplomacy, multilateral action and economic pressure, as in Ukraine, rather than through military might. Walesa, a former Polish president, said in an interview on Poland's TVN24 TV network last week that he was disappointed in what he considered Obama's insufficiently robust approach to the Ukraine crisis.After Poland, Obama heads to Brussels to meet with the G-7 .Obama is also slated to dine with Hollande that evening, but the White House said Obama and Putin had no formal meetings scheduled.
