The leaders of the so-called Normandy Quartet, namely Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia in February hammered out a peace deal between Kiev forces and independence supporters after marathon talks in Minsk, Belarus.

The peace plan stipulated a ceasefire between the warring sides in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region, heavy weaponry withdrawal from the line of contact and all-for-all prisoners swap.
