US Presidents Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin clashed over pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine, in a tense phone call yesterday as tensions between Moscow and Washington soared.

The fast escalating crisis was exacerbated by 2 episodes which had a dash of Cold War-style intrigue : a confrontation in the Black Sea in which a Russian warplane "buzzed" a US destroyer and weekend a visit to Kiev by CIA chief John Brennan.

The Obama administration consulted European allies and hinted that tougher sanctions targeting Russia's economy could be looming and warned Moscow was getting more and more isolated.
