EU foreign ministers to consider new sanction against Russia

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union leaders asked their foreign ministers on Tuesday to consider an appropriate response to renewed fighting in eastern Ukraine, including new sanctions against Russia, when the ministers meet in Brussels on Thursday.

"We express our concern about the deteriorating security and humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine. We condemn the killing of civilians during the indiscriminate shelling of the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on 24 January 2015," the leaders said in a rare joint statement.
