Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and British Prime Minister David Cameron have discussed international efforts on resolving the situation in eastern Ukraine and prospects of expanding military-technological cooperation in a telephone conversation, the Ukrainian presidential press service reports.
"David Cameron said the United Kingdom is ready to support Ukraine financially under a program worth 1 billion pounds that it has donated to the UN for humanitarian aid," it said.
