Ukraine IMF Aid Announcement Near as Obama Warns Russia

Ukraine and the International Monetary Fund will probably make an announcement tomorrow on a bailout, the government said, as the U.S. and Europe warned Russia it faces more sanctions if the Crimea crisis intensifies.

“Most likely it will be tomorrow,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s spokeswoman, Olga Lappo, said by phone when asked when the government and the Washington-based lender will unveil an agreement. Talks today in Kiev focused on resolving state natural gas subsidies, according to Deputy Economy Minister Anatoliy Maksyuta.
