KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Wednesday a "roadmap" would be prepared to agree to a ceasefire as soon as possible in east Ukraine, following a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Belarusian capital.
"A roadmap will be prepared in order to achieve as soon as possible a ceasefire regime which absolutely must be bilateral in character," Poroshenko said in a statement after the talk with Putin.
Poroshenko said the multi-lateral talks in Minsk, which included EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and the leaders of Kazakhstan and Belarus, were "tough and complex."
