Hollande Proposes Leaders' Summit on Ukraine to Push Peace Process

French President Francois Hollande on Monday proposed a meeting of the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine in Paris later this month to push ahead with peace talks after recent ceasefire progress.

"The process has moved forward. There has been progress in the last few weeks. The ceasefire has almost been respected," Hollande told a news conference.

"The foreign ministers will speak in the coming days, and I propose a meeting [of leaders] in Paris before the UN General Assembly [on Sept. 28] so that we can evaluate the process and lead it to its end."

Hollande added: "If the process succeeds I will support the lifting of sanctions."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
