Putin announces Ukraine ceasefire

MOSCOW - A ceasefire will begin in eastern Ukraine on 15 February, Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced.

"We have managed to agree on the main issues," he said following marathon talks involving Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, as well the leaders of France and Germany.

French President Francois Hollande said it was a "serious deal" but not everything had been agreed.

Thousands of people have been killed in the fighting in the east of Ukraine.

What a relief to the people of Ukraine, in particular those clamouring for independence. I hope Putin has learnt one or two things in this unnecessary war he caused
