by ER/Associated Press German Chancellor Angela Merkel has pressed President Vladimir Putin to help implement last week's deal aimed at reducing tensions in Ukraine. Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said Russia should call publicly on pro-Russian groups in eastern Ukraine to lay down their arms and said Moscow's behavior since last week's deal in Geneva has been "absolutely disappointing."
