Ukraine president presses for quick cease-fire

The Associated Press

MUNICH (AP) Ukraine's president is pushing for a quick cease-fire in his country's troubled east and insists that the conflict there must be resolved, not frozen.

Petro Poroshenko is also renewing Kiev's call to be provided with defensive weapons, something that's opposed by European countries.

Poroshenko was speaking at the Munich Security Conference Saturday amid a flurry of international diplomacy to calm the Ukraine conflict.

Poroshenko said that "there is no temporary solution this conflict must be resolved, not frozen."

He said Ukraine stands ready for a "comprehensive and immediate cease-fire" and Russia should be ready too.
