German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande visited Moscow on the 6 February 2015 to put a new peace plan regarding Ukraine to President Vladimir Putin. The two Western leaders had visited Ukraine on the 5 February 2015 to discuss the plan with President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine.

Following five hours of discussions the Kremlin spokesman said that the three leaders had agreed to cooperate to elaborate a joint document in the following days on the implementation of the Minsk agreements in Ukraine, which would include proposals by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, as well as proposals formulated during the Moscow talks and by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France agreed to meet in Minsk, Belarus on 11 February 2015, in an event described as a 'last chance' to avert full-scale war.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel met US President Barack Obama on the 9 February 2015 to discuss a joint strategy on the war in Ukraine. Merkel reaffirmed her opposition to the idea of supplying arms to Ukraine backed above all by the Republicans in the US.
