MOSCOW (Reuters) - Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Wednesday the Russian president's proposal for steps towards a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine did not seek to address the status of the territory, Russian news agencies reported.
"This is not a comprehensive plan. This is a proposal on priority measures and everything else is an issue for further negotiation," spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying by Interfax in response to a question about the status of the areas claimed by pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.
