Secretary of State John Kerry meets with his Russian counterpart in Paris to discuss the crisis in Ukraine.
Oh, and then this happened in Crimea:
In Simferopol, the capital of Ukraine’s autonomous Crimea region, U.N. special envoy Robert H. Serry was accosted Wednesday by unidentified armed men after visiting a naval headquarters in the city, U.N. Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson told reporters by telephone from Kiev. Eliasson said the group of 10 to 15 men blocked the Dutch diplomat’s car and ordered him to go to the airport and leave Crimea immediately.
“He refused,” Eliasson said, and left the vehicle on foot to walk back to his hotel. Eliasson called the incident “very regrettable” but said Serry told him by phone from a coffee shop that he is “in good shape physically” and was “not kidnapped.”
