Russia, Ukraine sit down for crisis talks
News ImageRussia and Ukraine sit down for high-stakes talks in Geneva on Thursday, seeking to ease the crisis as Interior Minister Arsen Avakov says Ukrainian troops killed three people and wounded 13 while repelling an overnight attack on their base. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is due to meet his Ukrainian, US and EU counterparts just as pro-Kremlin militants -- whom Kiev says are backed by Moscow -- consolidate their takeover of parts of Ukraine's southeastern industrial heartland. The crunch talks come after a military operation ordered by Kiev to oust the separatists collapsed, with militants showing no sign of budging and even humiliating the government by seizing army vehicles originally dispatched to clear them out. As tensions simmered, NATO announced that it is deploying more forces in eastern Europe, and called for Russia to stop "destabilising" Ukraine, which has been in deep turmoil since the ouster of pro-Kremlin president Viktor Yanukovych in February.
