Ukraine’s Right Sector Goes Rogue, Aims at Derailing Minsk Process
On Thursday, the Contact Group, comprising envoys from Moscow, Kiev, self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics and the OSCE, signed a peace deal aimed at ending the conflict in southeastern Ukraine. The deal was agreed upon by leaders of Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine after 16-hour talks in Minsk, the capital of Belarus.

The measures include a ceasefire between Kiev forces and independence supporters in eastern Ukraine, the creation of a buffer zone between the two sides through the withdrawal of heavy weaponry from the region and an all-for-all prisoner exchange.

The ceasefire comes into force at midnight local time on February 15 (February 14, 22:00 GMT).
