US eyeing Ukraine crisis with concern

Deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych gestures at his press-conference in southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, on February 28, 2014The United States is watching with deepening concern events unfolding in Ukraine, urging Moscow to stay out of the fray and telling ousted president Viktor Yanukovych he has lost all claim to power. In a sign of the growing alarm in Washington at the fast-moving crisis, US Secretary of State John Kerry called his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov for the fourth time in seven days early Friday to raise reports that Moscow might be moving men and materiel to intervene in the former Soviet satellite. The call came after Ukrainian authorities said they had regained control of two airports in southern Crimea which they said were seized during an “armed invasion” by Russian forces. The move prompted Ukraine’s new pro-EU leaders to appeal for protection, citing a 1994 pact between the US and Russia that guarantees the country’s sovereignty in return for Kiev giving up its Soviet-era nuclear arsenal.
