Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Ukraine on Tuesday to meet with the nation's leaders and offer the United States' support in the escalating conflict with Russia. The announcement came hours after Kerry, appearing on the Sunday talk shows, warned Russia to withdraw its troops or face consequences, sanctions, and a potential ouster from the G-8 superpowers. "It is really a stunning, willful choice by President Putin to invade another country," Kerry said.

Kerry was scheduled to visit Lebanon early this week, but will now instead head to Kiev.- -
