Germany, France condemn `unspeakable` Ukraine violence
Kiev: Germany and France on Wednesday strongly condemned the deadly violence in Ukraine, with President Francois Hollande urging sanctions and Chancellor Angela Merkel expressing solidarity with protesters.
"There are unspeakable, unacceptable, intolerable acts being carried out in Ukraine," Hollande said at a joint press conference with his German counterpart in Paris.
Speaking of "violence, brutality and repression" of the highest order, Hollande said both he and Merkel condemned "all these acts and the brutality emanating from the state."
"All those who have committed these acts, all those who are preparing to commit these acts, must know that they will face sanctions," he said.
"We stand with the men and women suffering" in Kiev, Merkel added.
