WILL ANOTHER DEAL END THE WAR IN #UKRAINE?
The government of Ukraine and pro-Russia rebels have agreed on a peace
plan which might raise hope for a true ceasefire in the eastern rebellion.
A deal was reached after late-night talks between representatives of
Ukraine, Russia, and a Novorossiya representative, witnessed by the
Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
The nine-point deal includes a 20-mile, a ban on overflights of part of
eastern Ukraine by military aircraft and the withdrawal of "foreign
mercenaries" on both sides.
The agreement was announced at talks in the Belorussian capital Minsk,
where the earlier ceasefire was reached on 5 September.
