FILE - In this Jan. 17, 2014 file photo, Secretary of State John Kerry speaks at the State Department in Washington.

In delivering the blunt message, John Kerry also announced the Obama administration was planning $1 billion in loan guarantees for Ukraine and would consider additional direct assistance for the former Soviet republic following unrest that led to the ouster of its Russian-backed president.
