Watch Diplomacy In Action As Russia And The U.S. Talk Ukraine


It all began innocently enough, with Secretary of State John Kerry boarding a plane for London Thursday night to discuss the crisis in Ukraine with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

At the direction of President Obama, @JohnKerry heads to London to discuss #Ukraine, Crimea with #Russia's FM Lavrov.

They both looked happy to be there.

Earlier in the day, Lavrov had met his British counterpart, William Hague. He even made him a cup of coffee.

Lavrov and Kerry, on the other hand, decided to take it outside, to the garden of the U.S. ambassador's residence in London.
