BERLIN, April 25 Germany's Angela Merkel told
Russia's Vladimir Putin in a call on Friday she is gravely
concerned about eastern Ukraine and expects Russia to honour the
agreement struck in Geneva and urge pro-Russia militia to
disarm, her spokesman said.
German government spokesman Steffen Seibert also told
reporters on Friday that Russia had done nothing to implement
"Whoever follows events realistically and clearly must
conclude.... that what has happened since the Geneva agreement,
particularly from the Russian side or from the side of the
pro-Russian separatists is absolutely disappointing. Russia had
the chance, and still has the chance, to state its support for
the Geneva deal and use its considerable influence in eastern
Ukraine. None of this has happened."
