Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that no progress was reached on establishing a ceasefire or starting peace negotiations over Ukraine during crisis talks in Berlin with his counterpart from Kiev.

Five hours of talks that also involved the foreign ministers of Germany and France concluded with an agreement for the sides to meet again and continue trying to deescalate the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War.

Lavrov accused Kiev's new pro-European leaders of continually changing demands over what it would take to establish a truce in more than four months of fighting with pro-Kremlin insurgents that has claimed more than 2,000 lives.
