Kiev, Moscow interpret talks from different angles

  • Kiev has accused Moscow of fresh troop incursions into Ukrainian territory a day after the presidents of the two countries Petro Poroshenko and Vladimir Putin met.

    Their one-on-one meeting came after talks that also involved members of the EU and leaders from Kazakhstan and Belarus. 

    While Poroshenko claimed that all those present at the table supported his “peace plan,” Putin stressed that the discussions were mainly about “economic cooperation,” adding that talks to resolve the Ukraine conflict ought to be between “Kiev, Donetsk and Luhansk.”

    Donetsk and Luhansk are cities in eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian rebels.
