Déclaration commune F. Hollande et A. Merkel



Eastern Ukraine Cease-fire Deal Reached

The cease-fire, which will begin Sunday, was announced following 16 hours of grueling, all-night talks in the Belarussian capital, Minsk.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the parties “have managed to agree on the main issues,” including the withdrawal of heavy weapons from the conflict area

Pro-Russian rebels were also reported to have accepted the deal.
