Poroshenko, rebel leader reach ceasefire agreement

  • Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko and a key rebel leader have reportedly agreed on a ceasefire, which is part of a peace proposal put forward by Russia’s president Vladimir Putin.

    But on the ground in eastern Ukraine, the situation has been tense, with reports of a rebel force heading towards Mariupol and Ukrainian government forces targeting the separatist-held city of Donetsk.

    Leaders gathered for a Nato summit in Wales have cautiously welcomed the ceasefire.
