The White House on Tuesday condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and said it was preparing a fresh round of sanctions in response to the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War.As the United States and European allies seek coordinated responses to pressure Russia, President Barack Obama and the leaders of the other six Group of Seven (G7) economies scheduled a meeting at The Hague next week to discuss Ukraine on the fringes of an already scheduled nuclear security summit.The Sochi summit is now deemed unlikely to take place and there is even speculation the G7 could move to expel Russia from the G8 after Putin signed a treaty making Crimea part of Russia, an outcome that Washington condemned and said would never been accepted as legal.Representative Eric Cantor, the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Obama should dramatically expand the number of Russians to receive sanctions and reassess U.S. policy toward Russia.
