MILAN, Oct 17 (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin
and Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko are looking to patch up a
faltering ceasefire in eastern Ukraine and resolve a dispute
over natural gas supplies when they meet in Milan on Friday.
The pair are expected to talk one-on-one on the sidelines of
a Europe-Asia summit, and hold broader discussions with EU
leaders alarmed at the potential for their dispute to trigger
wider international unrest.
