EU's Mogherini Detects Some 'Willingness' From Russia to Resolve Ukraine Conflict

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Wednesday that she and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had detected some signs of greater willingness from Russia to resolve the crisis in Ukraine's separatist eastern territories.

Her comments echo those of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who on Tuesday said Russia has made constructive moves in recent days toward reducing tensions in Ukraine, where more than 4,700 people have been killed in the pro-Russian uprising since April.

"We shared the impression that there might be some elements that could make us think that there might be some more willingness to solve the conflict on the Russian side, on President [Vladimir] Putin's side," said Mogherini, who is visiting Kiev.
