Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said that international monitoring on the ceasefire compliance is needed.

ULAN BATOR (Mongolia), September 3 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said that international monitoring on the ceasefire compliance is needed.

“Full-fledged and objective international control over the compliance of the ceasefire and monitoring the situation to create a secure zone should be observed,” Putin said in regard to what was needed to settle the situation in southeastern Ukraine.

During his visit to Mongolia Wednesday, Putin unveiled his seven-point peace plan for Ukraine, noting that humanitarian cordons should be opened to allow the movement of refugees and the delivery of humanitarian aid to conflict-torn areas.

Ukraine's southeast has been under fire since mid-April, when Kiev launched a military operation aimed at suppressing independence supporters who refused to recognize the legitimacy of the new Kiev government that came to power after a February coup.

Ukraine’s southeastern regions are currently in a state of humanitarian catastrophe, with citizens struggling without water and electricity.
