According to him, the international community is trying to influence Russia through sanctions.

"If Russia would have fulfilled its obligations, would have respected the sovereignty of Ukraine and its territorial integrity, then we could start rational discussion about the fate of the sanctions, but so far it has not happened," vice-president of the United States said.

He added that instead of fulfilling its obligations Russia has resorted to "greater acts of provocation, even greater disregard of the agreement, signed by Russia."
