Russia Says No New International Talks for Now on Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday there were no new international talks planned for now on Ukraine and that progress in de-escalating the crisis was possible only if the rival sides in Ukraine held direct talks.

Lavrov, speaking at a joint news conference with Uganda's foreign minister in Moscow, also reiterated the Kremlin's position that Russia respected the outcome of the self-rule referendum held on Sunday in Ukraine's east.
