Ukraine Declares Ceasefire

BBC – Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has declared a week-long unilateral ceasefire in fighting with pro-Russian militants in the east of the country.

Heavy fighting had been continuing between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russia rebels, with new reports of military hardware entering Ukraine.

The ceasefire had been expected ahead of the implementation of a peace plan.

However, correspondents say pro-Russian insurgents show no sign of laying down their arms.
