The US and EU have bolstered sanctions against Russia over its alleged support for separatists fighting in Ukraine.

The US has targeted major banks including Gazprom-bank, defence firms and energy companies.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was quoted as saying sanctions would take US-Russia relations to a "dead end".

The crisis has led to the most serious standoff between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War.
