The United States and European Union have imposed more sanctions against Russia, saying Moscow has failed to fulfill its commitment to work on defusing tensions in eastern Ukraine. The West is accusing Russia of instigating rebellion by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, with a goal of destabilizing the country. Zlatica Hoke says U.S. and EU officials warn of additional sanctions if Russia does not abide by the agreement reached in Geneva earlier this month.

If Mr. Putin wants to be hard headed, than the US, the EU and the UK has to stand up with Mr. Putin. This is a hard decision, cuz this is going to hurt both parties, But in the end we will win. cuz Russia cannot even feed herself. Mr. Putin needs to learn a little bit history, let him learn the same lesson Hitler learned.What does he think, Russia can fight the whole world? There have to be action taken against such tyrant like Mr. Putin. Or else he will move into Europe slowly. and we cannot condone such a vigorous act.It is time for a military action to be taken against Russia. The Russia citizens don't want to die for Mr. Putin, No. He is suppressing the Russia people, every election he wins, he is a criminal who stole the election.there is no way Mr. Putin can go to the ballot box and win free and fair election. No way. so we are asking the US, the EU, the UK to be aggressive with the Aggressor.We do know that violence increases violence, But in some cases, violence can stop violence. Who does this man think he is? Nonsnse
