Obama accuses Russia of bullying; sanctions to remain

US President Barack Obama accuses Russia of bullying in international affairs, saying sanctions against Moscow will remain in place until the Kremlin implements the Minsk agreement for Ukraine.

"We need to keep Russian sanctions in place," says Obama.

Russia has to recognize that "true greatness" does not come from bullying but from working together, says the president.
