The leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany, and France have signed off on a road map for a Ukrainian peace deal after 16 hours of talks in the Belarusian capital, Minsk.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin said the agreement called for a cease-fire to begin on February 15 at midnight, for heavy weapons to be withdrawn, and a security zone to be established.

Poroshenko, Putin, French President Francois Hollande, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel stayed up all night negotiating to make the deal.

The agreement was reportedly also signed by the self-proclaimed leaders of the pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine’s Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
