Talks over the crisis in Ukraine are underway in Geneva between the EU, US, Russia and Ukraine.

The purpose of the meeting, chaired by EU foreign policy Catherine Ashton and US Secretary of State John Kerry, is to bring Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Andriy Deshchytsya, and his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, to the same table for dialogue on security and political issues.

The four-way meeting has opened with huge differences between Russia and Ukraine. Russian officials want an extensive form of Ukrainian federalism as a way of solving the crisis.

Ukrainians, on the other hand, are seeking a lesser form of decentralisation by giving Russian-speaking areas more control over local affairs.
