Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Barack Obama continued exchanging opinions on the crisis in Ukraine in a telephone conversation late on Friday, the Kremlin press service said early on Saturday.
"Vladimir Putin drew Barack Obama's attention to the continuing rampage by extremists committing acts of intimidation of peaceful civilians, government institutions, and law enforcement agencies in various regions and in Kiev with impunity," it said.
In this context, the Russian leader proposed considering the international community's possible steps toward stabilizing the situation, it said.
Putin and Obama "agreed that the Russian and U.S. foreign policy chiefs will discuss particular parameters of this joint work in the near future," it said.
