Obama: Moscow not abiding by Geneva agreement on Ukraine

US President Barack Obama has accused Russia of failing to comply with the Geneva deal reached last week to de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

“So far we have seen them not abide by the spirit or the letter of the agreement in Geneva,” Obama told journalists after talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo.

The US leader said if the behavior continues “there will be further consequences and we will ramp up further sanctions.” He said Russia could face sanctions within a matter of days, not weeks.
