Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko gives a speech in front of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant sarcophagus on April 26, 2016Ukraine’s government on Friday agreed a new truce with pro-Russian insurgents to take effect on Orthodox Easter this weekend, reinforcing a deal signed more than a year ago. The announcement comes a day after the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warned that bloodshed in eastern Ukraine had reached levels not seen for months in the predominantly Russian-speaking war zone.
