KIEV, June 9 (Reuters) - Moscow and Kiev have reached a "mutual understanding" on key parts of a plan proposed by President Petro Poroshenko for ending violence in east Ukraine, the country's Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

It gave no other details after a "contact group" bringing together Russia, Ukraine and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe met for the second successive day. Russia did not immediately comment.
