MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US State Secretary John Kerry during a phone conversation on Saturday stressed the importance of adherence to the ceasefire in Ukraine.

"The Heads of Russian and US Foreign Ministries stressed the importance of adherence to the ceasefire, which should be implemented at midnight on February 15, by the conflicting parties," a statement published on official Facebook page of Russia's Foreign Ministry read.

The leaders of Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia held a 16-hour summit in Minsk on Wednesday and early Thursday. The talks resulted in a new political deal aimed at stopping the deadly conflict in eastern Ukraine.

The deal was signed by the Contact Group on Ukraine, including envoys from Moscow, Kiev, the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk and the OSCE.
