The US State Department said on Tuesday it anticipates more Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia, but suggested no action was likely before a diplomatic meeting in Geneva this week.

Envoys from Russia, Ukraine, the European Union and the United States were scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss the situation in Ukraine.

"We're going to give an opportunity to have a discussion on Thursday" to give diplomacy a chance, spokeswoman Jen Psaki told journalists.
