Russia's Putin would consider meeting Obama at U.N.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend next month's U.N. General Assembly in New York and would "consider constructively" any request for a meeting there with President Barack Obama, Russia's foreign minister said on Wednesday. Relations between Russia and the West hit a post-Cold War low over Ukraine, where Moscow annexed Crimea from Kiev last year and where Washington and Brussels say it is driving a separatist pro-Russian revolt in the east. Russia sides with the rebels but denies arming them, or sending its serving troops to fight on their behalf in east Ukraine.
