President Barack Obama held "constructive" talks Friday with Russian President Vladimir Putin as he pressed for swift implementation of a deal to end Ukraine's deadly crackdown on protesters.Putin and Obama agreed that the Ukraine agreement needed to be swiftly implemented and that all sides needed to refrain from violence, as they also pressed for the need to stabilize the economy.Washington had offered staunch support for protesters in Kiev, demanding political concessions from the Moscow-backed government of President Viktor Yanukovych and had warned of "consequences" if violence, which has killed 100 people, did not stop.The official said Yanukovych was visiting Kharkiv, considered his eastern political base, for a meeting, while playing down suggestions the president had fled the capital.
