MOSCOW, August 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi have called for intensifying international efforts to contribute to the ceasefire and prevent the humanitarian catastrophe in south-eastern Ukraine.
Putin and Renzi discussed this matter in a telephone conversation on Thursday, the Kremlin said.
Putin told the Italian premier about the key results of the talks in Minsk between Ukraine, the European Union and the Eurasian troika (Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan).
They “discussed certain issues of Russian-Italian cooperation” and agreed to maintain personal contacts, including in the framework of Italy’s rotating presidency in the EU, the Kremlin said.
