Ukraine: Ukraine accuses rebels of breaking truce as Western concern rises
Ukraine’s military on Monday accused pro-Moscow rebels of breaking a new ceasefire deal barely hours after it came into effect, as Western powers warned Russia over its actions in the former Soviet state.
One soldier was killed and another wounded in fighting in the country’s separatist east despite the new truce that started at midnight, the army said.
The latest attempt to silence the guns in Ukraine was agreed after more than 30 people were killed in a sharp uptick of violence this month between government forces and Russian-backed separatists.
But the deal, announced on Saturday after the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France held talks in Munich, remained fragile.
