The Office of Ukraine's President says he and Russian President Vladimir Putin have reached agreement on a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine.

The brief statement just released gave no details, and there was no immediate reaction from the Russia-backed separatists whom Ukrainian forces have been fighting since April.

Ukraine and Western countries claim Russia has sent troops into Ukraine to back the separatists, but Moscow says that's not true.
