Kremlin Says Putin and World Leaders Agree Ukraine Ceasefire Holding

Russia's President Vladimir Putin (R) meets with his French counterpart Francois Hollande at Moscow's Vnukovo airport, on Dec. 6, 2014.

A ceasefire in east Ukraine has generally been holding in past days, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted along with the leaders of Germany, France and Ukraine in telephone talks on the Ukraine crisis, the Kremlin said in a statement.

"It was noted with satisfaction that the warring parties have generally enforced the ceasefire in past days," the statement on Monday said.

It said the leaders emphasized "the paramount importance of guaranteeing a ceasefire in the future, an agreement on a line of demarcation for the sides, the removal of heavy weapons and the activation of prisoner exchanges."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
