President Obama has said it is "too early to tell" what the Ukraine ceasefire means.

Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko says he has agreed with Russian President Putin by phone on a "ceasefire process" for the east.

The Kremlin stressed Mr Putin had not agreed to a ceasefire as Russia was not party to the conflict.

Mr Obama said "we have not seen a lot of follow-up on so-called announced ceasefires".
