Kerry warns Russia against "expensive mistake" in Ukraine
US Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Russia's refusal to take any steps to end the crisis in Ukraine would prove costly, saying the window for Moscow to change course was closing.
In a surprise evening statement to reporters, the top US diplomat slammed Russia for breaking its promises by failing to implement the terms of a deal struck in Geneva last week with the US, EU and Kiev.
Ukraine's interim leaders had from "day one" kept their word after agreeing to the deal, Kerry said, adding that there had been "seven days, two opposite responses and one truth that cannot be ignored."
