While continuing clashes on the ground, the diplomatic talks resulted in the decision to organize a new round of negotiations to extend a ceasefire expected to end tonight. Is this the will of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has maintained telephone contacts with Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko, and still with François Hollande and Angela Merkel. By all indications, there are five points under negotiation, including a bilateral Declaration of truce and the implementation of a border control mechanism supervised by European bodies (OSCE).

The leaders of France and Germany put pressure on Putin to curb separatist actions pró-russos. For its part, the newly elected Poroshenko faces a storm of criticism in the country for allegedly be giving time to the rebels to regroup.
