UFA, Russia (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that there were more chances for Ukraine crisis to be successfully resolved rather than for it to fail.

He also said efforts to resolve the crisis have been hindered by Kiev’s reluctance to directly negotiate with the rebels in east Ukraine.
