Merkel to join Kerry in Kiev while Hollande travels to Moscow for Ukraine talks

French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to Kiev on Thursday and Moscow on Friday for top level talks to make a new proposal to try to solve the Ukraine crisis, Hollande said on Thursday.

“Together with Angela Merkel we have decided to take a new initiative,” Hollande told a news conference. “We will make a new proposal to solve the conflict which will be based on Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”

US Secretary of State John Kerry, who arrived in Kiev on Thursday for talks with the embattled Ukrainian leadership, intends to provide an additional $16.4 million in humanitarian aid to help civilians in eastern Ukraine, US officials said.
