Obama cautious on more sanctions against Russia unless Europe agrees

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama expressed caution on Thursday about the possibility of the United States adding more sanctions against Russia for its incursion into Ukraine because it could cause divide Washington and Europe. With some lawmakers on Capitol Hill considering more sanctions, Obama told the President's Export Council that the current path he is taking, in which the United States operates largely in lockstep with Europe, eventually will force Russian President Vladimir Putin to reconsider the wisdom of going into eastern Ukraine. "The notion that we can simply ratchet up sanctions further and further and further and then ultimately Putin changes his mind, I think is a miscalculation," Obama said. #Economy #facebook #Obama #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #markets

Ukrainian PM warns of default risk, calls for more Western help

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine risks defaulting on its debt unless Western donors come up with more funds on top of the billions of dollars of financial aid already promised, Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said on Thursday. A year of revolution and war with pro-Russian separatists has pushed Ukraine's hryvnia currency to record lows and crippled the economy, which was already near bankruptcy after years of corruption and economic mismanagement. Parliament on Thursday approved the new government's economic programme of tough reforms aimed at securing the $27 billion so far promised by Western backers including the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank #Economy #facebook #Brazil #Government #markets #Latin America #author #Ukraine #european
