KIEV, June 27 /ITAR-TASS/. The ceasefire regime in Ukraine’s eastern regions declared by Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko expired at 23:00 on Friday.
Currently, Poroshenko is having a meeting with chiefs of law enforcement agencies and top-ranking military on the situation in the country’s eastern regions, Poroshenko’s press secretary Svyaroslav Tsegolko said late on Friday.
“Upon arrival from Brussels, the president headed for a meeting with police and army chiefs,” he said.
Earlier on Friday, Poroshenko told a news conference in Brussels that as soon as he arrived in Kiev, he would look into extending the ceasefire regime in Ukraine’s eastern regions for another 72 hours.
