Crimean legislators arrived in Moscow to outline their plan for accession to Russia, but at home in the Ukraine, the interim government is still hoping to negotiate a way out of the crisis.
The meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin has many concerned in Kyiv. Many fear there is a chance the leaders will come to an agreement on the annexation of Crimea without involving Ukraine.
Trump said he hoped for an "extraordinary relationship" with Russia ahead of a summit with Putin. Their talks will cover several tricky topics, but there's one uncontroversial issue where real progress is possible.
It wasn't the first meeting between the two controversial politicians. When, however, Russia's Putin and Hungary's Orban contact each other in the midst of the EU crisis, it's time for 'Realpolitik', says Keno Verseck.
US-Russian relations have become noticeably worse since both countries' leaders met in Hamburg in July. So, will they meet at the APEC summit? Conflicting answers have emerged.
