The United States warned Russia Thursday it had only "hours" to prove it was helping disarm Ukrainian insurgents whose separatist drive has reopened a Cold War-style chasm in East-West ties.U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's warning came a day before Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko signs the final chapters of a historic EU accord that nudges his country toward eventual membership and pulls it firmly out of Russia's reach.Poroshenko also intends to get German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande to join him for a second round of telephone diplomacy with Russian President Vladimir Putin in two days.The State Department added that sanctions would be also discussed by EU leaders Friday when they sign the full Association Agreement with Ukraine that was ditched by the ousted pro-Russian president in November and now lies at the heart of the raging crisis.
