MOSCOW, July 17./ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the crisis in Ukraine with US leader Barack Obama by phone and said he is disappointed with Washington’s decision to impose regular sanctions against Moscow by phone on Thursday, the Kremlin reported.

“Putin expressed serious disappointment in connection with Washington’s unconstructive decision to impose the so-called ‘sectoral’ sanctions that damage both bilateral ties and efforts to seek compromise in order to settle the Ukrainian crisis,” the statement said.

During a detailed discussion of the acute crisis situation in Ukraine, the Russian president “reiterated the necessity to immediately and unconditionally cease fire by both parties to the hostilities in Ukraine’s Southeast that have already led to numerous victims and caused hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians to seek asylum in Russia.”

“The unacceptability of shellings by the Ukrainian army of Russian territory resulting in victims among Russian nationals was emphasized,” the Kremlin said.
