KIEV, March 22 (Reuters) - German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Saturday the international community must not allow the Ukraine-Russia crisis to create a new division of Europe.

Speaking at a briefing in Kiev after talks with Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk, Steinmeier said he hoped the first OSCE monitors would arrive in Ukraine to support de-escalation efforts in the next couple of days.

Yatseniuk said Ukraine would need support from Europe, highlighting energy security and possible cooperation with Germany "to help with the modernisation and strengthening of Ukraine's armed forces."
