Kerry calls Russia aggressors, urges Moscow to stick to Minsk deal





The US secretary of state accuses Russia of aggression in eastern Ukraine, urging Moscow to take action to uphold the Minsk agreements signed on September 5 and 19.

Kerry is in Ukraine to promise more US support, including lethal weapons for the Ukrainian armed forces. Later in the day, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande will join Kerry in Kiev. Paris says it has a fresh proposal for a permanent ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. The three are expected to shuttle to Moscow on Friday to hammer out the new proposal. The west accuses Russia of supporting militias in the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine. Moscow denies any involvement in the conflict.
