Kerry: US set to levy more sanctions on Russia

Published: 05.15.14, 18:50 / Israel News

LONDON - US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that the United States and Europe hope Russia will play a constructive role in the May 25 presidential election in Ukraine, but if Moscow or its proxies disrupt it, the US and European Union will move to impose more economic sanctions.


"I'm not going to get into announcing today what the sanctions are," Kerry said following a meeting with his counterparts in Britain, France, Germany and Italy. "We have completed our work. We know what they are. ... If they have to go into effect, they will have an impact."


A senior State Department official said the US shared its strategy to use a "scalpel rather than a hammer" to target vulnerabilities in Russia's business, banking, mining, energy, defense or other sectors. (AP)
