This was announced by Russian president's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax.
"The president has said earlier that with the purpose of securing implementation of the Minsk agreements, if it necessary for the implementation, he would be ready for this kind of contact. But again, for that, certain conditions are needed, and homework needs to be done for that," he said.
Peskov also added he was not aware of any plans for 'such contacts.'
Putin's spokesperson said that the last time Putin communicated with Poroshenko was prior to "the diversion in Crimea," meaning the recent provocation on the occupied peninsula by Russia.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he would "need to communicate" with Poroshenko within the Normandy format.
