Russian President Vladimir Putin warned German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Ukraine was now on the verge of civil war after the Kiev government sent in the army against separatists in the east of the country.

But the leaders both "emphasised the importance" of the planned four-way talks on Ukraine between top diplomats of Russia, the European Union, the United States and Ukraine.
