“Both leaders urged the parties to continue respecting the cease-fire, begin the disengagement of forces along the line of contact as quickly as possible, and provide international monitors unfettered access to the entire conflict zone,” the release stated on Thursday.

Obama, the release continued, expressed strong support for the ongoing efforts of the Normandy Group to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements to resolve the Ukraine crisis.
