US says Russia allows fighters to cross into Ukraine

Pro-Russia militants fire at Ukrainian border guards defending the Federal Border Headquarters in Lugansk, eastern Ukraine, on June 2, 2014The United States said Monday that Russia is continuing to support the pro-Russian insurgency in Ukraine, despite US sanctions aimed at punishing it for its alleged interference in its neighbor. “There is evidence that Russia continues to allow the free flow of weapons, funds, and fighters across its borders and President (Vladimir) Putin’s next steps are still not clear,” Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said, in a speech in Washington. Lew said the United States had worked with the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and its G7 partners to coordinate a response to the crisis and provide Ukraine with financial and technical assistance. “Our goal was to impose a cost on Russia for its occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea and to deter Russian military intervention in Ukraine,” he said, according to prepared remarks for an event at the Center of Strategic and International Studies.
