Washington - The US State Department says Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Russia this week for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It will be his first trip to Russia since the start of the Ukraine crisis, which has badly damaged relations between Moscow and the west, and only his second since taking office.

The State Department said Kerry will meet Putin and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Tuesday.

Kerry last visited Russia in May 2013.
