ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday met Russian World War Two veterans and laid a wreath at the country's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at a ceremony held during a visit to the Russian capital Moscow. The event took place ahead of a meeting with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov where he is expected to "make another stab" at seeing if the United States and Russia can work together to find a political solution to end Syria's civil war, according to sources in the U.S. government. Kerry is also scheduled to see Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday to discuss a wide range of issues including the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs, Afghanistan and U.S.-Russian trade.
