Some Progress in Russia-Ukraine Talks


 Foreign Ministers from Russia and the Ukraine have ended “difficult” talks vis-à-vis the Ukraine crises, with no concrete advances having yet been made, as clashes continue on the ground, but that “some progress” had come out of it so far, according to sources out of Germany, which is hosting the talks.

“The talks are difficult, but I think and hope we have made some progress on certain points,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said following a meeting with Russia’s Sergei Lavrov, the Ukraine’s Pavlo Klimkin, together with French counterpart Laurent Fabius.

“Despite the difficulties, we do see some sort of progress,” a French diplomatic source confirmed to AFP.
