THE foreign ministers of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France ended their latest Berlin crisis meeting Wednesday with a joint call to end hostilities in Ukraine but no ground-breaking agreement.

The four top diplomats in their statement said they “call on all sides involved to cease hostilities and to withdraw heavy weapons” from a demarcation line agreed in a September truce pact signed in Minsk.

“I’m not going to say we saw a breakthrough, but I think we saw tangible progress today,” said German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, adding that coming days would show whether there is real progress or not.
