KIEV, June 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says Russian President Vladimir Putin's request to the Federation Council to cancel the resolution on use of Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine is a first practical step after the statement that the Russian president supports the peace plan for settlement in Ukraine’s main coalmining region Donbass, the Ukrainian presidential press service reported on Tuesday.
Poroshenko also asked Verkhovna Rada Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov, “to discuss with Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko possible debate on this issue at a next meeting of the upper house of Russian parliament,” the Ukrainian press service said.
Earlier today, Russian President Vladimir Putin asked the Federation Council to revoke the resolution on use of Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine.
