KIEV, June 25, 5:55 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's President Pyotr Poroshenko on Tuesday discussed the peaceful settlement plan in telephone conversations with US Vice-President Joseph Biden, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Thorbjoern Jagland, Secretary-General of the Council of Europe.
The presidential press service reported on Tuesday, "The Head of State does not rule out that the ceasefire regime may be cancelled ahead of time in view of a continuous violation of it".
