Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have discussed the ceasefire in eastern Ukraine's Donbas warzone.
"I spoke with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The Secretary of State welcomed the establishment of silence regime in Donbas. It's been 31 days without combat losses among our military. This became possible thanks to our efforts and thanks to the support of the United States and Europe. Thank you for your support for territorial integrity and bipartisan support," Zelensky tweeted on Wednesday, August 26, following a phone conversation with the U.S. top diplomat.
Earlier today, the Joint Forces Operation Command reported on the first month of full and comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas introduced on July 27.
