Russia "Open to Dialogue" with New Ukraine Leader

Russia says it is "open to dialogue" with the new president of Ukraine, as initial results suggested Petro Poroshenko would win its election. However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said military action must end against separatists in the east. Mr Poroshenko said he would meet Russian leaders soon but vowed to take a tough line on any armed separatists. Unrest continues in the east, with pro-Russia militiamen halting flights at Donetsk airport.
