Violence continues in Ukraine despite cease-fire extension

World Today

Fighting in eastern Ukraine continues to flare despite President Petro Poroshenko’s three-day ceasefire extension.

Fighting flared around the eastern flashpoint city of Slaviansk on Sunday despite a truce extended until Monday night, a deadline also set by EU leaders considering new sanctions against Russia.

The European Union said it could impose more penalties on Moscow on top of existing asset freezes and visa bans unless pro-Russian rebels act to wind down the crisis in the east of the country by Monday. CCTV’s Stephanie Fried tells us whether a lasting truce could be expected in the near future.
