The US President vowed to ratchet up pressure on Russia amid fears the fighting in eastern Europe is worsening by the day.
Barack Obama today threatened to use all measures - short of military action - to force Vladimir Putin to back down over the Ukraine crisis.
He vowed to ratchet up pressure on Russia amid fears the fighting in eastern Europe is worsening by the day.
He also warned Putin was hell-bent on engaging in military conflicts regardless of the damage it caused to Russians with its sanctions-hit economy nosediving into recession.
The US leader spoke out in India after the West blamed pro-Moscow rebels for the deaths of 30 civilians and injuries to 95 in weekend bloodshed in strategic port city Mariupol.
Russia and separatist forces claim that the Ukrainian army was responsible for the attack on civilians.
Kiev strongly denied this and alleged intercepted communications proved the weekend bloodshed was the work of terrorists who receive support in Russia.
Both the US and EU issued strong warnings to Putin, calling on him to curb the rebels.
I will look at all additional options that are available to us, short of military confrontation, and try to address this issue, said Obama.
We are deeply concerned about the latest break in the ceasefire and the aggression that these separatists - with Russian backing, Russian equipment, Russian financing, Russian training and Russian troops - are conducting.

Barney Fife threatens Bluto...
Aw jeeze, Obama is threatening a real man?
He’s going to sic his ISIL biddies on Putie.
Just siding with his slime bros!
When Obama calls on Congress to SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE military spending, as Carter did after Afghanistan, rather than worrying about what name to call our newest LGBT battalion, then both RUSSIA and myself will know that he’s actually serious.
Until then, we both will LAUGH at him.
Well now the liar is seriously involved, what is really going on?
Crawl out through the fallout baby...
Obummer what measures short of military action will ensue! Oh I know Obummer will send Putin some of his speeches on DVD! that will solve the problem Putin will run screaming from the room and scream Allah Akbar, Please take Me I have to get away from America’s crazy president. Putin will graze for 7 years in the Russian Steppe, a crazied despotic leader mentally harmed by Obummer’s speeches
What can possibly go wrong ?
Obama has gutted our military.
It will take years to rebuild the damage he has done, if, and IF, we can ever rebuild.
Meanwhile he and Val cozy up to Iran and back away from Israel.
Until hash tags come in kilo tons, Putin can ignore him.
“By God, Vladimir, if you cross this red line...I will...uh....uh....”
"Oh, my goodness, he's going to ratchet up the pressure.....quick hit the reset button....."
Uh-oh. Did Putin kick sand in Obie’s face? If Putin isn’t careful, Obie’s going to send away for the Charles Atlas program he found in the back of a comic book.
I think Obama was a Saudi agent. I think many people know this. I think he purposely enabled the Muslim radicals to take over the Middle East, and he secretly funneled Billions of Dollars to them. I think he is a homosexual. I know he is a Muslim. I also know that God is going to punish Barry Soetoro very severely. He has one chance - to turn to Jesus Christ. If he rejects that, his torment for all time is assured.
Bammy’s going send some errant drives Putin’s way?
Maybe Bammy will approve XL pipeline and oil drilling on Federal land to drive the price of oil down further?
