In his statement, Petro Poroshenko pointed out: "My internationalnegotiations in Brussels and Minsk demonstrated a powerful requestfor peaceful political-diplomatic settlement of the conflict in theDonbas. The same mood dominated during my meetings with globalleaders at the NATO Summit in Wales.
The entire world strives for peace,the entire Ukraine strives for peace, including millions of Donbasresidents.
The highest value is human life. Wemust do everything possible and impossible to terminate bloodshedand put an end to people's suffering.
Taking into account the call forceasefire of President of Russia Vladimir Putin addressed to theheads of illegal armed groups of the Donbas and the signature ofthe protocol at the meeting of Trilateral contact group on theimplementation of the Peace plan of the President of Ukraine, Iorder the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraineto cease fire starting from 18:00, September 5.
I also instruct the Minister ofForeign Affairs of Ukraine to ensure jointly with the OSCE anefficient international control over the compliance with theceasefire regime which must be exclusively bilateral.
I hope that these agreements,including ceasefire and liberation of hostages, will be strictlyobserved."
