BOSTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron agree that Russia's military presence in Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula is unacceptable and welcome an observer mission in the region by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

The two men spoke as Obama flew on Air Force One from Washington to Hartford, Conn. The president was pushing for an increase in the minimum wage and later traveled to Boston to attend a Democratic Party fundraising event.

The White House says Russia is already facing reduced confidence from investors for its actions in Ukraine.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe sent a team of 35 unarmed military personnel to Crimea on Wednesday at the fledgling government's request.
