BERLIN, February 21, 0:59 /ITAR-TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. counterpart Barack Obama discussing the situation in Ukraine with them, the German government press service reported on Thursday.
“The German chancellor informed about current mission of the foreign ministers of Germany, France and Poland in Kiev,” the press service said. “The chancellor and both presidents shared the view that a political solution to crisis in Ukraine should be found and bloodshed should be stopped as quickly as possible,” the press service noted.
