The United States has called for immediate ceasefire in Ukraine.                        

The call was made in a telephonic conversation between US Defense Secretary Lloyd J Austin and his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoygu.            

The US Defense Secretary also emphasized the importance of maintaining lines of communication.

Meanwhile, Russian troops are withdrawing from Ukraine's second-largest city, Kharkiv two days after the Ukrainian forces recaptured two key villages in the city.
