Assessment: Thick as thieves. State Department darling Washington Post quickly chiming in with its own version of the anonymously sourced story makes it appear that this is what’s happening …

“The current situation in Ukraine is indeed disconcerting,” he said in an emailed response to a query from Reuters, adding that “the high priority now is to prevent the tense situation from escalating or even getting out of control.”
