Leaders talk at Normandy

6 Jun, 2014

Putin, Poroshenko and Obama talk cease-fire at the 70th anniversary commemoration of D-Day. This is the first meeting between Obama and Putin since Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014, and they agree to further peace talks between Poroshenko and a Putin emissary. The agreement is not without demands from the Russian leader; Putin tells reporters at Normandy:

The Ukrainian leadership must show its goodwill and wisdom. They have to immediately stop the operation and announce a cease-fire. There is no other way to create the conditions for negotiations.
