"Sanctions against Ukraine are not on the order of the day," German Chancellor Angela Merkel told press Thursday. "What is important now is to stop the violence," she said, after deadly clashes in Kiev between pro-European protesters and police. The US has already imposed travel bans on some Ukrainian officials.
