Kremlin says Putin, Hollande discuss boosting efforts to solve Ukraine crisis
MOSCOW, March 12
MOSCOW, March 12 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday discussed "possibilities for stepping up international support" for a solution to the crisis in Ukraine, the Kremlin said.
The tone of the Kremlin statement about a phone call differed from that of a statement from Hollande's office, which said Hollande told Putin he must do everything to stop the "unacceptable annexation" of Ukraine's Crimea region by Russia.
