The US and Russia on 30 March 2014 failed to break the East-West deadlock over how to proceed on Ukraine crisis. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met and held a 4-hour long talks with an aim to break the deadlock of Ukraine crisis, which ended with no conclusion.

Kerry after the meet said that US still considers Russia’s takeover of Crimea of Ukraine as illegal and illegitimate and it was also said to Lavrov. He also stressed on a point that without Kiev’s involvement any decision on Ukraine’s future could not be made. During the meet of the two representatives, Kerry also raised US concerns about the presence of Russian troops on Ukraine border, as its presence on the border area has created fear and intimidation.

On the other hand, Lavrov said that he and Kerry have agreed to work with the Ukrainian government to improve rights for Russian-speaking Ukrainians and disarm irregular forces and provocateurs. He has also categorically dinied any plans for an invasion.
