Poroshenko claims US ready to finance postwar reconstruction in Donbass

Ukrainian President Petr Poroshenko has had a telephone conversation with US Vice President Joe Biden. The two discussed international assistance to the implementation of a peace plan for Donbass, the Ukrainian president's web site reports.

Poroshenko informed Biden about the active efforts under way to restore living conditions in the so-called "liberated" towns in eastern Ukraine, which had been heavily bombarded by Ukrainian troops over the past two months.

Biden reportedly agreed to study the possibility of financing the reconstruction of civilian infrastructure destroyed by Ukrainian bombings in eastern Ukraine.
