Moscow — A cease-fire reached overnight in Minsk to stop fighting in eastern Ukraine echoes a similar pact struck five months ago. This time the leaders of France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia were present to bless – although they did not sign – a deal that could be the last chance to halt a conflict that has spiraled toward all-out war over the past month.
The new agreement, published on the Kremlin website, calls on both sides to stop fighting, pull back heavy weapons, and exchange prisoners. The cease-fire is due to take effect midnight Saturday.
