From the Associated Press:
Ukraine and the Russian-backed rebels have signed a cease-fire deal that starts in less than two hours, a European official at the talks said Friday.
The announcement by OSCE’s Heidi Tagliavini came as representatives of Ukraine, Russia, pro-Russian rebels and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe met in the Belarusian capital of Minsk. She said the cease-fire would start at 1500 GMT (11 a.m. EDT).
Will the cease-fire last? There’s skepticism:
Ukraine has signed a cease-fire agreement with pro-Russian rebels. Doubt itll last long though tbh…

Lets be frank here, this peace process and ceasefire won't last. Russia will use latest sanctions and military excercises as an excuse.

Ukraine ceasefire: @NahlahAyed: Ceasefire to begin at 6PM. Timing, on last day of NATO summit is likely no accident. But will it hold beyond

1 HOUR TO SEE IF A CEASEFIRE HOLDS UP OR IF PUTIN IS BULLSHITTING US.
