THE HAGUE, August 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Western sanctions against Russia have not worked in changing Moscow's policy on the crisis in eastern Ukraine, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Friday.
Rutte said the developments were "extremely concerning" in the conflict zone where the militia forces have launched a counter-offensive against the Ukrainian government troops. "We do not accept it and additional sanctions should not be ruled out," he said.
Commenting on Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk's announcement of his country's plans to seek NATO membership, Rugge said that this would not contribute to a solution.
