Vexed Rex: Russ sanc­tions stay

New York Post - - NEWS - Yaron Steinbuch, Wires

Sec­re­tary of State Rex Tiller­son blasted Rus­sia Thurs­day for in­cit­ing vi­o­lence in Ukraine by back­ing rebels, and vowed that the United States would keep sanc­tions in place un­til Moscow withdraws its forces from the coun­try.

“We should be clear about the source of this vi­o­lence,” Tiller­son said in Vienna at a meet­ing of the Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Se­cu­rity and Co­op­er­a­tion in Europe.

“Rus­sia is arm­ing, lead­ing, train­ing and fight­ing along­side anti-gov­ern­ment forces. We call on Rus­sia and its prox­ies to end its harassment, in­tim­i­da­tion and its at­tacks on the OSCE spe­cial mon­i­tor­ing mis­sion.”
