LATEST Threat comes after Obama brands Russia's actions a 'threat to international peace and security'
 
 

Friday 07 March 2014

 
 

Russia has pledged to retaliate against any sanctions imposed on it by the EU and US, further raising tensions in what has quickly become worst diplomatic crisis between Russia and the west since the end of the Cold War.Russia on Friday accused the European Union of taking an “extremely unconstructive position” by freezing talks on easing visa barriers and suspending trade in response to the country's intervention in Ukraine.

 

“Russia will not accept the language of sanctions and threats” and will retaliate if sanctions are imposed, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.  Russia now has 30,000 troops in Ukraine's Crimea region, Ukrainian border guards said on Friday, nearly twice the previous figure given by the government in Kiev.

 

In a coordinated effort, US President Barack Obama on Thursday night ordered sanctions on Russian and Ukrainian peoples involved in Moscow's military intervention in Crimea, including travel bans and freezing of their US assets. Both the US and EU said sanctions will be furthered if Russia does not withdraw its forces back to their base in Crimea.
