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.
“I must return home and hold consultations with the military and the government. Ceasefire regime will be in force till evening and by that time a decision will be passed,” he said.
The ceasefire regime was in force from evening of June 20.
