KIEV (Reuters) - British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Wednesday making progress toward peace in eastern Ukraine depended primarily on the Kremlin, adding that it was crucial for the West to maintain sanctions against Russia.

"Clearly it's up to the Russians primarily to make progress on the security side. But it's up to all sides I think in this conversation to make progress together," he said at a briefing during his first official visit to Kiev.
