A top-level summit to discuss the crisis in Ukraine is being planned for the coming week.

German chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman said preparations are under way for her to meet Russian president Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko and French president Francois Hollande in the Belarus capital Minsk on Wednesday.

Steffen Seibert said the decision follows an “extensive” phone call this morning between the four leaders, during which further measures for a peace plan were discussed.

Mr Seibert said preparations for the summit will take place tomorrow in Berlin, without elaborating.
