Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Saturday that he and Russian leader Vladimir Putin had agreed that the ceasefire between Kiev and separatist rebels was largely holding.
"The two heads of state noted (in a phone call) that the ceasefire regime was generally being observed. Petro Poroshenko and Vladimir Putin discussed ways to make the ceasefire hold," the Ukrainian president's office said in a statement, after the rebels and government forces accused the other of some truce violations.
