The United States and Russia held more talks aimed at easing tensions in Ukraine, but to no avail.
The United States and Russia have had what they say are frank talks as they try to resolve their disparity over Ukraine.
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reiterated his denials that a large contingent of Russian forces along the border was preparing to invade Ukraine.
Foreign Minister Antony Blinken said the US and its allies would react seriously if Russia crossed the border.
The meetings could not find an agreement, otherwise both sides would proceed with steps to defuse the crisis.
Washington warns of the consequences of an invasion, while Moscow seeks security assurance.
Is there a middle ground that can be reached?
