WASHINGTON, March 3 (Reuters) - The United States has a broad range of options available to it to act against Russia if tensions over Ukraine escalate and Washington is currently preparing sanctions against Moscow, a State Department spokeswoman said on Monday.

"At this point we are not just considering sanctions given the actions Russia is taking, it is likely we will put those in place and we are preparing that," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on a conference call. "We have a broad range of options available." (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton; Editing by Eric Beech)
