Yatsenyuk Urges No Let Up On Sanctions Against Russia

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk urged Western countries not to lift sanctions against Russia until all Ukrainian territory was back under the control of Kyiv, in a speech to the UN General Assembly on September 24. He said it was hard for peace talks to take place under the barrel of a gun 'made in Russia.' Moscow has annexed Crimea and has been accused by Western countries of deploying substantial troops in separatist held areas of eastern Ukraine, which it denies. (Reuters)
