The office of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says he and Russian President Vladimir Putin have reached agreement on a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine.
The brief statement on Wednesday gave no details and there was no immediate reaction from the Russia-backed separatists whom Ukrainian forces have been fighting since April.
Ukraine and Western countries claim Russia has sent troops into Ukraine to back the separatists, but Moscow rejects those allegations
