U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is in Russia to meet President Vladimir Putin with an eye on easing badly strained relations over conflicts in Ukraine and Syria. Kerry laid a wreath at a World War II memorial in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, before holding talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. He'll also speak with Putin on the brief visit, his first to Russia since May 2013 and the advent of the Ukraine crisis. NPR's Corey Flintoff joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti with details.
