Poroshenko stated this, opening the NSDC meeting on Monday, Ukrainska Pravda reports.
"Today I propose a cease-fire as the beginning of the peace plan implementation," Poroshenko said.
The fire will be ceased for a limited period in order to give the terrorists and separatists the opportunity to lay down arms, he said
"We do not want negotiations for the sake of negotiations," Poroshenko stated.
However, a cease-fire is possible only after the Ukrainian Army restore the control over the Russian-Ukrainian border, Poroshenko added.
