Putin meets the new Ukrainian President

Most western media are totally wrong about this "significant" meeting:

Russia used the D-Day commemorations to signal an apparent détente over the Ukraine conflict, as Vladimir Putin met the country’s new leader for the first time and called for an end to fighting on both sides.
On the sidelines of ceremonies to mark the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings, President Putin held what aides described as a brief but significant meeting with Petro Poroshenko, the victor in last month’s Ukrainian presidential elections.
The 15-minute conversation was the first time the two men had spoken since Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in February. Back then, Mr Poroshenko was chased from the peninsula by a pro-Russian mob while attempting a peacemaking mission.
Confirming the talks, Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said: “Both Putin and Poroshenko called for a speedy end to the bloodshed in south-eastern Ukraine, as well as to fighting on both sides – by the Ukrainian armed forces as well as by supporters of the federalisation of Ukraine.”
Mr Peskov added: “They also confirmed that there was no alternative to resolving the situation with peaceful political methods.”

In reality the meeting between the Russian dictator and Poroshenko was meaningless, because Putin's "promises" are nothing but empty rhetoric. Putin is a lier, who cannot be trusted.
