US planning sanctions on pro-Russian actors in Ukraine - report

The United States is preparing to impose financial sanctions against "pro-Russian separatists" in Ukraine, the Wall Street reported on Tuesday citing US officials.

According to the report, the measures could be announced this week and would affect at least four individuals, whose assets would be frozen.

The move comes as Washington and Moscow continue discussions on the situation in Ukraine. The White House said that it believes Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine "at any point" but expressed hope Moscow will pursue a "diplomatic path."
