U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held tense talks with his Russian counterpart in Geneva Monday to end fighting in Ukraine, where the U.N. says more than 6,000 have died in less than a year.The meeting with Sergei Lavrov in Geneva came less than a week after Kerry accused Moscow of lying about its involvement in the conflict, and as high-stake talks to resolve a bitter gas dispute between Kiev and Moscow were also due in Brussels. Kiev security officials said Monday that 1 Ukrainian soldier had been killed over the past 24 hours.It was as yet unclear exactly what Kerry and Lavrov talked about in their 80-minute encounter -- later followed by a second, brief meeting -- and the U.S. diplomat was due to brief the press early afternoon.The swelling violence and dire living conditions have forced more and more people to flee, and by mid-February, at least one million people had been registered as internally displaced inside Ukraine.
