(KIEV, Ukraine) -- Russian and Ukrainian leaders agreed to a cease-fire on Wednesday in a heavily-populated region of Eastern Ukraine.
In a statement posted to his website, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that the cease-fire in the Donbas was agreed to during a phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The parties reached mutual understanding on the steps that will facilitate the establishment of peace," the statement read.
In recent weeks, a large number of Russian troops had been reportedly stationed near the border between the two nations. Poroshenko had also accused pro-Russian separatists -- armed with Russian weapons and vehicles -- of being found inside the Ukrainian borders.
