The European Union is prepared if needed to call a Ukraine crisis summit next week to toughen sanctions against Russia, France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Monday.

Saying it "appears obvious" Russia bears some responsibility for the violence in eastern Ukraine, Fabius said that "should it be necessary, there can be a meeting next week of Europe's heads of state and government to agree new sanctions."
