Russia says effective measures are needed for a genuine ceasefire and implementation of the Minsk agreements to end the conflict in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his counterparts from France Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel with Ukraine on agenda on the fringes of the G20 summit in Hamburg.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there was an understanding between the three countries that strong measures should be taken leading to real ceasefire on the frontline and to ensure military hardware withdrawal.
