US President Barack Obama says that Russia must recognise Ukraine's newly elected leader as legitimate if it wants to resolve months of crisis.

Obama was speaking to US television before a busy day of diplomacy at D-Day commemorations in Normandy, France, where Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke briefly to Ukrainian president-elect Petro Poroshenko.

Obama, who also met informally with Putin, said that he valued cooperation with Russia on issues including the Afghanistan war and the interim nuclear agreement with Iran.
