Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed in talks in Brazil that the situation in Ukraine, where Kiev is continuing an offensive against pro-Russian separatists in the east, is "deteriorating".

They also "stressed the need for the urgent resumption of a contact group on Ukraine, possibly via videoconference.

According to Putin and Merkel, for this to happen there needs to be a statement as soon as possible concerning a ceasefire, a prisoner exchange, and the return of international monitors" in eastern Ukraine.

Over three months of fighting in Ukraine's restive east have claimed more than 550 lives so far.
