Kelin expressed hope that Washington will enhance Kiev's decision-making to stop combat operations.
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.
