  1. Geneva Talks Begin as Clashes Kill Three Separatists in Ukraine

    For the first time since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, representatives from Russia, the EU, the U.S. and Ukraine are meeting to try and secure peace. The Geneva-based talks are getting under way as Ukrainian “anti-terrorist” efforts run up against violence. Overnight, three separatists were reportedly killed in a clash with Ukrainian troops on a base in the east. Yesterday, pro-Russian separatists commandeered military vehicles from Ukrainian soldiers before driving them in a victory lap in Kramatorsk as onlookers cheered.
