MINSK, August 27, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko have ended their first tete-a-tete meeting after almost two hours of talks.

The two presidents met behind the closed doors after consultations held between the Customs Union, Ukraine and the European Union in Minsk on Tuesday. They were devoted to questions of interaction between the Customs Union and Kiev after Ukraine had signed an association agreement with the European Union.

The Putin-Poroshenko meeting became the first negotiations between the presidents of the two countries. The two leaders had a brief less than a 10-minute-long meeting in Normandy last June that was held in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande.

Besides, the Russian and Ukrainian presidents have talked by telephone several times.
