Kerry Threatens to Slap Russia with Sanctions


US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about the crisis in the Ukraine and warned him that if the situation in the western region of the country does not improve, the US will place additional and more severe sanctions on Russia.

Kerry asked that Russia stop its ‘tempestuous rhetoric’ and further diplomatic efforts with the Ukrainian government. He also asked that Russia force back the pro-Russian separatists currently wreaking havoc in western Ukraine.
