US warns of possible sanctions on Ukraine after police actions on protesters

imgThe US state department has said it is considering all options, including sanctions, towards Ukraine as the political crisis there continues.

It follows attempts by riot police to dislodge anti-government protesters from their strongholds in the capital.

“We are considering policy options… sanctions are included but I am not going to outline specifics,” said state department spokesperson Jen Psaki.

“There is a range of options that we are open to, but we are not at that point at this stage.”
