Moscow: Russia on Thursday called Western threats of fresh sanctions against Moscow evidence that Washington and Brussels are not working for the success of a troubled truce in Ukraine.

"Behind these calls lies the unwillingness of these figures, these relevant countries, the United States, the European Union, to seek the implementation of what was agreed in Minsk on February 12," said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, referring to a Ukraine truce brokered by France, Germany and Russia.
