At a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, U.S. President Barack Obama is planning to focus on the resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, a high-ranking White House official said.

President Obama will use this meeting to discuss Ukraine and will focus on Moscow's need to adhere to the Minsk accords, he told Interfax on Sept.24.

This will be the key issue at the forthcoming meeting, he said.

Taking into account the situation in Ukraine and Syria, the president believes that it would be irresponsible not to try to attain some progress on these tracks at the talks with the Russian side at the top level, the American official said.
