Kerry tells Russia of 'deep concern' over Ukraine: official

US Secretary of State John Kerry boards his plane to return to Washington after a day of talks between representatives of Ukraine, the European Union, Russia, and the United States in Geneva on April 17, 2014US Secretary of State John Kerry told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov of his “deep concern” Tuesday over Moscow’s failure to de-escalate tensions in Ukraine, a senior State Department official said. Kerry also warned that a lack of Russian progress on a deal struck in Geneva last week would lead to more sanctions, the official added. The latest flurry of US diplomacy came as Ukraine relaunched military operations against pro-Kremlin separatists, while Russia already has tens of thousands of its troops massed on Ukraine’s eastern border. “He urged Russia to tone down escalatory rhetoric, engage diplomatically in the east with the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) and Ukrainian government, and issue public statements calling for those occupying buildings to disarm and stand down in exchange for amnesty.”
