Kerry presses Russia to help free team in Ukrai

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State John Kerry is urging Russia to support
efforts to free military observers being held by pro-Russian forces in Ukraine.
   Kerry also told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in a call Saturday that the
United States is concerned that Moscow's actions are "undermining stability, security
and unity" in Ukraine.
   The State Department says Kerry cited Russia's "provocative" troop movements
along the border, Moscow's support for separatists and Russia's "inflammatory
rhetoric."
   Kerry also wants Russia to support -- and not "denigrate" -- Ukraine's effort to
stabilize the country.
   A pro-Russian insurgency accuses the German-led team of military observers of
being NATO spies.
   The U.S. and the world's other leading industrial powers say they're planning more
economic penalties against Russia because of Moscow's actions in Ukraine.
