Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko shake hands during an Aug. 26 meeting in Minsk.
The 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," according to BBC citing Russian presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.
In a revised statement, Poroshenko's press service said that such an 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.
