Russian news agencies are reporting that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet Tuesday with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Sochi to discuss ongoing unrest in Ukraine, Syria and Yemen.

State news agency RIA-Novosti cited a source as saying the Kremlin hopes Kerry will bring new proposals on settling continued unrest in Ukraine.

Ukraine continues to be embroiled in sporadic conflict despite a cease-fire being sealed in mid-February.
