Obama says must send message to Russia to stop destabilizing Ukraine

U.S. President Obama talks next to Malaysian PM Razak as they both participate in news news conference at the Perdana Putra Building in PutrajayaPresident Barack Obama said on Sunday it was necessary to send a message to Russia that its “destabilizing” actions in eastern and southern Ukraine must stop, as the United States and its European partners prepared to impose new sanctions on Moscow. Speaking at a news conference during a visit to Malaysia, Obama said any decision on whether to slap “sectoral” sanctions on the Russian economy at a later time would depend on whether the United States and its allies could find a unified position on how to proceed. “We’re going to be in a stronger position to deter Mr Putin when he sees that the world is unified and the United States and Europe is unified rather than this is just a U.S.-Russian conflict,” Obama told reporters. He said Russia had not “lifted a finger” to get pro-Russian separatist rebels in Ukraine to comply with an international agreement to defuse the crisis.
