Putin Agrees on Ukraine Truce Steps With Poroshenko

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko agreed on steps toward a cease-fire in Ukraine’s easternmost regions, where a bloody conflict has raged for more than five months.

Putin backs the idea of an immediate truce, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. A conversation between the two leaders resulted in an agreement on a “cease-fire regime” and they reached a mutual understanding on the steps toward peace, Poroshenko said on his website.
