Germany and Russia Dicker over Ukraine

Britain’s Independent newspaper reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin are secretly negotiating a deal to end the conflict in Ukraine under which Russia would end support for Russian separatists and provide Ukraine a reliable supply of gas, and in return get acknowledgement of its annexation of Crimea and assurances Ukraine won’t join NATO.

Not sure that’s a good deal for anyone except Germany and Russia.
