The guns fell quiet in a flashpoint eastern Ukrainian town Sunday after a weeklong surge in violence that prompted U.S. President Donald Trump to pledge to help bring peace to the European Union's backyard.The Ukrainian military said late Sunday that no soldiers had been killed in the past 24 hours for the first time since fighting over the blue-collar town of Avdiivka soared last Sunday.Trump used Saturday's call to promise to work toward an end to the war, but appeared to stop short of offering the sort of staunch backing that Ukraine had enjoyed under the administration of President Barack Obama.Washington also said the two leaders had a "good call" but provided few other details except to note that a meeting between Trump and Poroshenko was in the works.
