Poroshenko spoke to Putin on the phone on Sept.3, according to a statement on the president’s website. “As a result of this conversation, an agreement was reached on a permanent ceasefire in Donbas. An agreement was reached about mutual vision of steps that will promote peace,” the press statement said.

Peskov said earlier in the day that Putin and Poroshenko in a recent conversation discovered that they “largely share views” on peace solutions in Ukraine’s east. He said, however, the President Vladimir Putin did not agree to a ceasefire because Russia is not a party in Ukraine’s conflict.

The new agreement comes as a surprise because the presidents could not agree on common solutions to the problems in the east during their two-hour discussion in Minsk on Aug. 26.
