Russia Warns Kerry's "Threats Are Unacceptable" As Europe Weighs Sanctions | Zero Hedge


Russia Warns Kerry’s “Threats Are Unacceptable” As Europe Weighs Sanctions | Zero Hedge.

Russia has lashed out following comments from US Secretary of State John Kerry:

  • *RUSSIA SAYS KERRY THREATS ARE `UNACCEPTABLE’
  • *RUSSIA SAYS KERRY ISN’T ANALYSING SITUATION IN UKRAINE
  • *KERRY IS USING COLD WAR SLOGANS, RUSSIA FOREIGN MINISTRY SAYS

In comments on the Russian foreign ministry website, Lavrov added:

  • *RUSSIAN MEASURES IN UKRAINE ARE `REASONABLE,’ `LEGAL’: FOR.MIN.
  • *U.S., ALLIES IGNORED VIOLENCE, RUSSOPHOBIA IN UKRAINE PROTESTS
  • *G-8 HALT OF PREPARATIONS FOR SUMMIT IS UNCONSTRUCTIVE: RUSSIA

 

In addition, EU ministers debate freezing the assets of Ukrainians responsible for corruption and “targeted measures” against Russia if no change of course is undertaken.

  • *EU Ministers Debate Freezing Assets of Ukrainians Responsible for Corruption – Draft Text
  • *EU Debates Calling Russian Crimea Actions “Invasion” – Draft Text
  • *EU Commends Ukraine’s Response to Russia Actions – Draft
  • *EU Will Suspend Visa Negotiations with Russia – Draft Text
  • *EU Debating Placing Arms Embargo on Russia If No Change of Course
  • *EU Could Prepare Future “Targeted Measures” vs Russia If No Change in Course – Draft

Perhaps most notable though this morning was the following headline:

  • *RUSSIA DEP FORMIN KARASIN SPOKE ON UKRAINE W/ CHINA COUNTERPART
  • *RUSSIA: CHINA EXPRESSED UNDERSTANDING OF ITS UKRAINE ANALYSIS
  • *RUSSIA, CHINA DISCUSSED UKRAINE’S INTERNAL POLITICAL CRISIS

In other words, China was well aware of the plan and appears comfortable taking sides.
