"This is not an isolated action, but part of a dangerous pattern over many months to destabilize Ukraine as a sovereign nation," NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen said. Despite the escalation in the crisis, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the government that took over in Kiev after February's overthrow of the pro-Russia president Viktor Yanukovych had made progress on the economy.
