Russia says U.S. proposing cooperation with Moscow over Ukraine

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry proposed cooperation with Moscow to resolve the Ukraine crisis during a telephone conversation with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday.

Lavrov underscored the need to ensure implementation of a European Union-brokered peace deal that Viktor Yanukovich signed last week before fleeing the Ukrainian capital, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. Yanukovich claims he remains president.
