U.S. and allies discuss new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine: Kerry
By Lesley Wroughton LONDON (Reuters) - The United States and its allies are discussing imposing more sanctions against Russia for undermining a European-brokered truce in eastern Ukraine, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday. Kerry made the comments as he began talks with his British counterpart Philip Hammond in London, accusing Moscow of "extraordinarily craven behavior at the expense of the sovereignty and integrity of a nation". The Kiev military accused Russia on Friday of sending tanks and troops into eastern Ukraine despite a ceasefire that went into force last Sunday, brokered by France and Germany in a bid to end a conflict that has killed more than 5,000 people. The Kremlin did not immediately respond to the allegation but has always denied accusations in the past that its forces are fighting in Ukraine.
