UKRAINE, East – Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel are to travel to Kiev on Thursday and Moscow on Friday to discuss what they described as the ‘Ukraine War’. Their visit comes as Washington is debating whether to rearm the Ukranian government as it is losing territory to rebels in Luhansk and Donetsk. Rebels have been accused of launching an attack on Mariupol, whilst rebel leaders have declared Luhansk and Donetsk independent self governing states and surrounded the strategic town of Debaltseve. The French President is quoted as saying that he doesn’t believe Ukraine should join Nato.
