WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is demanding that Russian forces that have overtaken Ukraine's Crimea region withdraw and go back to their base.

Obama spoke on the phone Thursday with Russia President Vladimir Putin, who the Kremlin says made it clear that Russia's moves are consistent with international law.

The Kremlin says Putin told Obama that the newly formed Kiev government is the result of an "anti-constitutional coup" and that Russia is "unable to ignore" requests for protection from Ukraine's Russia-leaning east and south.
