Foreign Secretary William Hague has said Russia must stop disrupting Ukraine elections due on 25 May if crisis talks are to be worthwhile.
After a meeting with Ukrainian politicians in Kiev, Mr Hague said Russia "didn't take a single step to implement what was agreed in Geneva," referring specifically to Russian promises to use its influence to discourage separatist activity.
Mr Hague added: "There must be ... a complete acceptance that Ukraine is entitled to have elections on May 25 and that these should go ahead without external disruption."
European Union foreign ministers added 13 people to their visa ban and asset freeze list over Ukraine's crisis.
Well that’s the voting over, and no surprises so far. A ‘Yes’ vote claimed to be 89% in Donetsk, and suddenly Ukraine is no more.
Nearly 90 percent of voters in eastern Ukrainian region voted for self-rule, the head of the separatist election commission said.
