The US and EU are discussing "deeper sanctions" against Russia if there are "further incursions into Ukraine".

US President Barack Obama said "energy is obviously a central focus of our efforts", acknowledging it "will have some impact on the global economy".

He was speaking after talks in Brussels with EU leaders.

In a keynote speech later, he said Russians "will recognise that they cannot achieve security, prosperity and status... through brute force".
