STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW: Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin speak on sidelines of a D-Day lunch
  • Russia's Putin and Ukraine's Petro Poroshenko shake hands, talk briefly
  • French President Hollande dined with Obama on Thursday before separate dinner with Putin
  • Obama said he would reiterate comments on Ukraine if he and Putin met

(CNN) -- A much anticipated encounter between President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, came on the sidelines of a lunch held Friday to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

It's not known what the pair -- whose relationship has been strained by Russia's actions in Ukraine -- discussed.

But the conversation, described by Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes as informal, lasted 10 to 15 minutes.

Speculation had been brewing that the two leaders would meet, despite apparently elaborate steps taken by Francois Hollande to avoid a tense encounter.

MOSCOW, June 6 (RIA Novosti) – UN Russian Language Day is observed annually June 6. The event established by the United Nations in 2010 was meant to coincide with the birthday of Alexander Pushkin, colloquially called the father of the modern Russian literary language.

The Russian language is one of the six official languages spoken at the UN, together with English, French, Chinese, Arabic and Spanish.

In 2011, then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree establishing June 6 as the Day of the Russian Language.

D-Day: wat je moet weten

Wat betekent D-day? Vaak wordt gedacht dat het staat voor Decision-Day, maar het is een term die militaire planners gebruiken voor de eerste dag van een operatie. De vierde dag is dan bijvoorbeeld D +4. In het dagelijks gebruik is D-day echter 6 juni 1944, de eerste dag van de Slag om Normandië (operatie-Overlord), en het begin van de bevrijding van West-Europa.
