During a telephone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Secretary of State John Kerry "made clear" that if Russia did not take steps to de-escalate in eastern Ukraine and move its troops back from Ukraine's border, there would be additional consequences.
The Consequences? Obama is sending Joe Biden to Ukraine later this month.
Biden's visit is meant to signal to Vladimir Putin the latest developments in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists with the support of Moscow continue an orchestrated campaign of incitement and sabotage to destabilize the Ukrainian state, is unacceptable.
Wonder if they will paint a red line down the middle of Biden's face......
