Ukraine’s president-elect Petro Poroshenko will attend the 70th anniversary of the World War Two “D-Day” landings in Normandy, his office said on Wednesday, potentially creating an opportunity for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Relations between Russia and Ukrain, neighbors that share close historical ties, are in tatters after protesters pushed a Moscow-friendly Ukraine President from power in February and Russia annexed Crimea.
