The leaders of Germany and France warned Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday, that Russia could be hit with punishing sanctions within days unless he forced Ukrainian rebels Moscow is accused of backing, to suspend their deadly uprising.

The French presidency said Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel made their case to the Russian strongman in a call that stretched for more than two hours and included Ukraine's embattled pro-Western leader Petro Poroshenko.

The new Ukrainian president's office said the four agreed to speak again today, when a truce is set to expire at 1900 GMT with no end to 13 weeks of fighting in sight.
