FILE - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin participates in the morning session of the National Governor's Association Winter Meeting in Washington, in this Feb. 22, 2014 file photo. Vermont lawmakers have passed the country's first state bill to require the labeling of genetically modified foods as such, setting up a war between powerful lobbyists for the behemoth U.S. food industry and an American public that overwhelmingly says it approves of the idea. The Vermont House approved the measure Wednesday evening, April 23, 2014 about a week after the state Senate, and Gov. Peter Shumlin said he plans to sign it. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)MONTPELIER, Vt.

A pro-Russian armed man stands guard near the state security service building in SlavianskSlavyansk (Ukraine) (AFP) - US President Barack Obama said Thursday Russia was not abiding by agreements aimed at defusing the crisis in Ukraine and warned of "consequences."

President Barack Obama gestures as he speaks during a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Akasaka Palace State Guest House in Tokyo Thursday, April 24, 2014. Obama says new sanctions targeting Russia are, quote, "teed up." But he says the United States needs support from allies to make the sanctions work and says he is working to build such backing. Opening a four-country swing through the Asia-Pacific region, Obama is aiming to promote the U.S. as a committed economic, military and political partner, but the West's dispute with Russia over Ukraine threatens to cast a shadow over the president's sales mission. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)TOKYO (AP) — Showing solidarity with Japan, President Barack Obama affirmed Thursday that the U.S. would be obligated to defend Tokyo in a confrontation with Beijing over a set of disputed islands, but urged all sides to resolve the long-running dispute peacefully.
