Russia's Lavrov says Kiev move towards NATO aimed at undermining peace
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Ukrainian moves to seek NATO membership were aimed at undermining efforts to end the war in the east of the country. Lavrov said last week's move by Kiev came shortly after a meeting of the Russian and Ukrainian leaders to seek to defuse the crisis. "So the party of peace was trying, and is still trying, to advance a negotiated political settlement of all the fundamental questions Ukrainians face, and in Kiev, the party of war is taking steps clearly aimed at undermining these efforts," he told a news conference.

It quoted Yuri Ushakov as saying that whether or not those words were spoken, the quote "was taken out of context and had a totally different meaning".

Austria takes harder line on Russia as EU sanctions loom
Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann took a tougher line on Russia's role in Ukraine on Tuesday, blasting Moscow's "deception and salami tactics" in the conflict and saying Austria was prepared to pay the price of tougher sanctions. It was a significantly harder line from neutral Austria, which until now has been reluctant to hit Russia hard with economic sanctions designed to punish what Western leaders have called unacceptable Russian behavior. "If it is necessary to defend freedom and international law, then Austria will be in the forefront." Austria had been walking a careful line between showing solidarity with European Union peers and keeping the lines of communication open with Moscow, with which it has traditionally had good political and business ties.
