KIEV, Ukraine – The cease-fire in Ukraine's rebellious east appears to be holding, despite some violations early on, the head of the country's national guard said Saturday.

National Guard Commander Stepan Poltorak was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying that although some shooting took place up to about 45 minutes after the cease-fire, "as of this morning there haven't been any violations, either from our side, of course, or from the terrorists."
