Ukraine’s top diplomat pushed back on the suggestion of “positive movement” in talks with Russia cited earlier by President Vladimir Putin, saying there’s been “zero progress.” U.S. stocks fell after the comments, and the dollar rose.

The U.S. State Department sanctioned several Russian businessmen tied to ABR Management and Novikombank. Several U.S. hedge fund companies with investments from Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich were told to freeze his assets after he was sanctioned by the U.K., the Wall Street Journal reported.
