BEIJING, September 04./ITAR-TASS/. China expects that the ceasefire plan proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin will help resolve the conflict in Ukraine, an official spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

"We call for immediate ceasefire between the conflicting sides in Ukraine," the spokesman said adding that the crisis could only be resolved by political means.

Putin on Wednesday unveiled a seven-point peace plan for eastern Ukraine urging the conflicting sides to end offensive operations. He also called for the pullback of armed forces out of shelling range of civilian areas, an end to airstrikes, an exchange of all detainees, opening of humanitarian corridors, repairing damaged infrastructure and deploying international observers to monitor the ceasefire.
