Ukraine Cites Support For Peace Plan

MINSK, Belarus (AP) -- The Interfax news agency is quoting Ukraine's president as saying the leaders he met with in Minsk, which included Russian President Vladimir Putin, support his peace plan.

But there were no indications that the support foretold a quick end to the fighting in eastern Ukraine between pro-Russia separatists and Ukrainian forces.

Putin, whose country is accused by Kiev and the West of arming and supporting the rebels, said separately Tuesday that he had an "overall positive assessment" of the meetings, which included a face-to-face session with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as well as joint sessions with him, the presidents of Kazakhstan and Belarus, and top European Union officials.

Putin said there was no discussion of a cease-fire in Ukraine because Russia is not a party to the conflict.
