Putin, Poroshenko Hold Ceasefire Talks

(Minsk) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin is describing his talks with his Ukrainian counterpart as positive, but distanced his country from negotiating an end to the fighting in Ukraine. Putin and Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko met in Minsk to discuss a ceasefire plan to end the separatist conflict in the eastern part of the former Soviet republic. Putin said it was not Russia's role to get involved in a truce between the Ukraine government and two rebel factions. Ukraine has charged Russia with supporting the rebels with weapons and fighters, a claim that Russia denies. The meeting took place just hours after Kiev said it had captured Russian soldiers in Ukrainian territory.
