“The head of the Ukrainian state called on the American side in close cooperation with European partners to give a consolidated and decisive response to Russia's attempts to once again provoke an exacerbation of the situation in Donbass, as evidenced by a significant increase in ceasefire violations,” the release said.
Poroshenko assured the interlocutor that Kiev strictly follows the Minsk agreements.
"Joseph Biden expressed support for the reforms that are taking place in Ukraine, in particular, the implementation of constitutional reform in the field of decentralization," the website notes.
“The interlocutors discussed cooperation in the military-technical sphere and further contacts between Ukraine and the United States, in particular, within the framework of the events planned for September during the 70 session of the UN General Assembly in New York,” the press service said.
It is also reported that "Biden supported the efforts of the Ukrainian government to stabilize the macro-financial situation."
The newspaper reminds that, despite the truce regime, mutual shelling in the Donbass continues. Kiev pulled considerable forces to the line of demarcation and, according to the self-proclaimed republics, is preparing for active hostilities.
