PARIS (AP) - Top diplomats from the West and Russia are trying to find an end to the crisis in Ukraine.
The envoys from Russia, Ukraine, the U.S., Britain and France were originally planning to discuss Syria's civil war at a gathering in Paris today, but that changed after Russia's military takeover of Ukraine's Crimea region.
NATO also plans to take up the issue directly with Russia in an extraordinary meeting today in Brussels.
