MOSCOW, April 24 (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday that the United States must force the current Ukrainian leadership to immediately stop the military operation in southeastern Ukraine and withdraw military units to their permanent bases.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said telephone talks planned for Wednesday and Thursday between Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of States John Kerry had not taken place "for reasons that did not depend on Moscow".
