PARIS, March 4 (Xinhua) -- France and its European partners would "apply all necessary pressure including sanctions" to seek a political solution to Ukrainian crisis, French President Francois Hollande said on Tuesday.

During an annual dinner with representative council of Jewish institutions, Hollande said "Russia has taken the risk of a dangerous escalation," by "deploying soldiers in Crimean peninsula."

"In these circumstances, France's role with Europe is to apply all necessary pressure including sanctions to find the way of dialogue and seek a political solution to this crisis," he added.

At a televised press conference Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin called events in Ukraine a coup and argued that the use of force was Russia's last resort to solving the ongoing crisis.
