France's foreign minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, called for a timetable for elections in eastern Ukraine and for release of prisoners on Thursday after meeting with his counterparts from Germany, Russia and Ukraine. While there has been no breakthrough in the region, VOA's Nike Ching reports there is a concern Russia is using the talks to tighten its grip.
