U.S. encourages Ukraine's Poroshenko, warns of further costs to Russia

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden encouraged Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Saturday to pursue talks that could lead to a ceasefire with rebels and said Washington continued to pursue efforts to raise pressure on Russia, the White House said. Ukrainian forces targeted positions on Saturday near the border with Russia from where separatists, using high-powered Grad missiles, bombarded an army motorized brigade on Friday, killing 23 servicemen. Biden, who has been the point man for the White House on the Ukrainian crisis, spoke to Poroshenko by phone earlier in the day. #Politics #India #China #Japan #Technology #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #President #Latin America
