Secretary of State John Kerry has issued an ultimatum to Russia today, insisting they have until Monday to “reverse course”
and abandon Crimea. The Crimean peninsula is holding a referendum on
Sunday, in which it is expected to vote to join the Russian Federation.
Kerry said if Russia refuses to give in to US demands they could expect a “very serious series of steps” against them, including major economic sanctions, which US officials say could do serious harm to Russia’s economy.
The Obama Administration has been trying to coax significant
Russian trading partners, of which the US is not, into agreeing to
impose major sanctions that would harm their trade.
