The Interfax news agency is quoting Ukraine's president as saying the leaders he met with in Minsk, which included Russian President Vladimir Putin, support his peace plan. It was not immediately clear if the support prefigured a quick end to the fighting in eastern Ukraine between pro-Russia separatists and Ukrainian forces. Putin, whose country is accused by Kiev and the West of arming and supporting the rebels, was to speak to reporters separately.
