Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he supports a peace plan tabled by Ukraine - as long as it includes "practical action" to start talks.

He said Kiev must negotiate and make compromises with pro-Russian rebels for the plan to be "viable and realistic".

Putin also said a week-long truce - declared by President Petro Poroshenko - must not be used as an "ultimatum".

Clashes have continued in eastern Ukraine, with rebel attacks overnight injuring six border guards.
