(NECN) -  Although President Obama did not visit Ukraine during his trip, the crisis in the crisis has been a major focus of Obama’s international trip this week.  
     
Massachusetts Congressman Stephen Lynch has been to the country and recently returned from his trip to Ukraine. He returned with concerns that Russia's buildup will lead to invasion.
