France: More Russia sanctions if Ukraine port attacked

Kiev fears Mariupol, with its 500,000 people, could be the next major target for pro-Russia separatists.

Moscow would face more EU sanctions if pro-Russia separatists attacked Ukraine’s government-held port of Mariupol, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said.

Speaking to France Info radio on Wednesday, Fabius said “The problem today is particularly around Mariupol. We’ve told the Russians clearly that if there was a separatist attack in the direction of Mariupol things would be drastically altered, including in terms of sanctions”.”

“At a European level the question of sanctions would be asked again,” said Fabius, who hosted a meeting on Tuesday with his Russian, Ukrainian and German counterparts in which they renewed calls for an oft-breached ceasefire agreement to be respected.

Kerry meets Lavrov for Ukraine talks in Geneva

US secretary of state and Russian counterpart meet as UN says Ukraine death toll has passed 6,000 in less than a year.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has begun talks in Geneva with his Russian counterpart to end fighting in Ukraine, where the UN said the death toll has soared past 6,000 people in less than a year.

The meeting with Sergei Lavrov in an upscale Geneva hotel on Monday came less than a week after Kerry accused Moscow of lying to his face about its involvement in the conflict, which has triggered the worst post-Cold War crisis between the US and Russia.

6,000 have died in eastern Ukraine in less than a year, UN says

The estimated number of people killed in eastern Ukraine since April 2014 now exceeds 6,000 “in spite of successive ceasefires,” the UN Human Rights Office announced in a statement on Monday.

The escalation in fighting in recent weeks, particularly near Donetsk airport and in the Debaltseve area, resulted in hundreds of deaths, both civilian and military, according to a new report.
