    French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko hold a short meeting before participating in the Unity Rally. About a million people are expected to take to the streets in Paris in the wake of the violence that began with an attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

    MOSCOW, January 11 (Sputnik) – The leaders of Germany, France and Ukraine held a brief meeting Sunday before joining a rally to honor those killed during three days of brutal attacks in France earlier this week, French media reported.

    About a million of participants, including some 40 world leaders, are expected to take to the streets in Paris in the wake of the violence that began Wednesday with an attack on a satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo.
