Jen Psaki says only ‘de-escalation' will bring talks with Russia back on the table

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says only ‘de-escalation’ will bring talks with Russia back on the table.

Joe Biden today announced “full blocking sanctions” against Russia in response to actions in eastern Ukraine that he said amounted to a “flagrant violation of international law”.

Sanctions will also be imposed on “Russian elites and their family members” from Wednesday, he also announced.
