The French and German foreign ministers, who head to Kiev for talks on Monday, have urged Ukraine to push forward with reforms in the spirit of the movement that ousted Russian-backed president Viktor Yanukovych two years ago. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault, in Monday's edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung paper, praised the progress already made by the Ukrainian government, but called for more, notably in the fight against corruption. The reforms are so important that "all political and economic forces in the country aware of their responsibilities" should take part, the pair wrote ahead of their two-day trip, beginning Monday.
