Well spoke too soon - although a play on words. It’s understandable from the Ukrainian president’s viewpoint to bring Russia into the fray although Russia is not a party to the actual conflict, in the press release.
Either way, as long as peace is discussed between the Eastern separatists and Kiev and a ceasefire is implemented, that’s all for the good.
*Kremlin denied that there was an agreement reached between Presidents Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine and Vladimir Putin of Russia on a “permanent ceasefire” as “Russia is not party to Ukraine conflict”
Presidents Petro Poroshenko’s press service said in a statement that such agreement was reached over the phone. The original statement indicated a “permanent” ceasefire agreement was reached for Ukraine’s east, but made no details available. Later the word “permanent” was removed.
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier in the day that Putin and Poroshenko in a recent conversation discovered that they “largely share views” on peace solutions in Ukraine’s east. He said, however, the President Vladimir Putin did not agree to a ceasefire because Russia is not a party in Ukraine’s conflict, BBC reported.*
