US considers sanctions against Ukraine

Thursday, 12 December 2013 - 12:12

The US state department has said it is considering all options, including sanctions, towards Ukraine as the political crisis there continues.

It follows attempts by riot police to dislodge anti-government protesters from their strongholds in the capital.

The president said on Wednesday force would not again be used against peaceful protesters.

But his offer of talks to resolve the crisis was swiftly rejected by opposition leaders.

The weeks of demonstrations in the centre of Kiev have paralysed this country of 46 million people.
