State Department: US’s Kerry to visit Ukraine next week

US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Kiev on Thursday for talks with President Petro Poroshenko and other Ukrainian officials, the U.State Department said on Friday. US President Barack Obama this week voiced deep concern about renewed fighting between Russian-backed separatist and government forces in eastern Ukraine and said the United States is considering all options short of military action to isolate Russia. “The Secretary’s visit will highlight the United States’ steadfast support for Ukraine and its people,” the State Department said in a statement. It said Kerry will then travel to Germany from Feb. 6 to 8 to participate in the 51st Munich Security Conference.
