BRUSSELS — President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron laid down new markers for Russia on Thursday, giving Moscow a month to meet conditions in Ukraine or face further sanctions that will hit key sectors of Russia’s economy.

The new thresholds for action were laid out at a joint news conference, after a Group of Seven world leader summit that was re-arranged to exclude Russian President Vladimir Putin after aggressive moves in Ukraine. Cameron said Putin’s actions are completely unacceptable and at odds with the group’s democratic values.

To avoid even harsher sanctions, Cameron said, Putin must meet three conditions: recognize Petro Poroshenko’s election as the new leader in Kiev, stop arms from crossing the border and cease support for pro-Russian separatist groups concentrated in eastern Ukraine.

Will they write his name on the chalkboard if he continues to misbehave?

I know the LR School District went to this form of discipline and it has done wonders for their discipline problems.
