Speaking in Kiev, Under Secretary of State for Politic Affairs Wendy Sherman also said the United States was considering a request for military aid from Ukraine’s interim government. “I hope we can get Russia to talk,” she told reporters after touring the square where nearly 90 people were killed during pro-European protests last month before the fall of pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych. “Russia needs to de-escalate and move its forces back so that Ukraine is one, sovereign territory.”
