Ukraine conflict: Putin's peace plan adds to confusion

  • Vladimir Putin has issued a peace plan for the Ukraine conflict, but there have been conflicting signals from Kiev about any agreement being reached, reports say.

    Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk dismissed the Russian president’s seven-point plan, saying it was a trap even as clashes continued on the ground between pro-Russian rebel fighters and the Ukrainian side.

    Putin has asked the rebels to stop advancing and Kiev to withdraw soldiers from the conflict zone.
