U.S. imposes sanctions on Russia

Washington (CNN) - After announcing Ukriane-related sanctions targeting some Russian officials and others, U.S. President Barack Obama told reporters Monday that the United States wants to make it clear to Russia "that further provocation (in Ukraine) will do nothing" except diminish Russia's standing in the world.

He said he believes "there's still a path to resolve" the Ukrainian situation with Russia diplomatically. That would include, he said, Russia pulling its forces back to bases, deploying international monitors, and Russia engaging in dialogue with the Ukrainian government.
