The United States imposed visa bans and set the stage for wider sanctions against Russia, warning any move to split the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine would break international law.

The stern message was aimed at President Vladimir Putin over Russia's incursion into Ukraine, and came as Secretary of State John Kerry worked in Europe for a diplomatic way out of the worst East-West crisis in decades.

The visa ban targets Russians and Ukrainians blamed for threatening the sovereignty or territorial integrity of Ukraine, where pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted after mass protests last month.
