Senior U.S. Diplomat Says Action Against Russia 'Starting to Bite'

Measures taken against Russia after its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region are already "starting to bite," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said Wednesday.

Speaking at a security conference in Bratislava, Nuland said it was important that people in the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Luhansk had a chance to cast ballots in a coming presidential vote.

"What is most important is that people of Donetsk and Luhansk get a chance to vote on May 25 and we will se what they have to say," she said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
