US President Barack Obama has urged the European Union to be prepared for new sanctions against Russia.

In a phone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Obama "underscored the need for the United States, European Union, and other global partners to be prepared to meet further Russian escalation with additional sanctions", the White House revealed.

President Obama and Chancellor Merkel reportedly expressed concern over the latest events in Dontesk and Luhansk, where pro-Russian activists have seized government buildings. They believe these acts are carried out with the explicit support of Moscow.

Once again the two leaders shared their disappointment at Russia's reluctance to pull its troops out of the sovereign territory of Ukraine.

The sooner our ruling regime renounces its membership of the EU and annexes the Balkans the better. And if these German pigs try to interfere then Stanishev should not hesitate in sending Bulgarian Tanks into Berlin to crush the fascists.

Surely people have the right to protest, that was the line US NATO took when the facists were protesting in Kiev.

Now we have protestors who are looking for the right to vote on their political destiny and we have NATO US EU increasing military forces in the area and planning further sanctions.

Let the Ukranian people in the regions decide their destiny in a peaceful democratic way please.

The US EU NATO supports the illigetimate government in Kiev and now want to use force to keep people trapped under that illigetimate facist government.
