Leaders of the Group of Seven major economies agreed to impose more sanctions on Russia over the crisis in Ukraine, where armed pro-Moscow separatists have detained a group of international observers they accuse of being NATO spies.

The pro-Western Kiev government said a Russian special forces operative was behind what it called a kidnapping in the eastern city of Slaviansk that is under the separatists’ control, and said the detainees were being used as a “human shield”.

Ukraine’s state security service said the observers for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were being held “in inhuman conditions in the basement of the terrorists’ headquarters,” and that one needed medical help.

“Russian authorities never condemned these terrorists and this is the clear sign that the Russian regime supports these gangsters,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said.
