MOSCOWMarch 4 (UPI) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke Tuesday about "the acute crisis situation in Ukraine."

According to the Kremlin, the two leaders foresaw order being restored in Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula but did not explain the steps that would be taken to restore "peace and order."

"Both sides expressed confidence that in spite of the aggressive actions by radical and extremist Maidan forces, interethnic and interfaith peace and order will be ensured in Crimea."

Putin also held a press conference in Russia on Tuesday during which he refuted U.S. and international community allegations that Russian troops are currently occupying the Crimean Peninsula.
