New Ukraine Cease-Fire Reached

The neocons won't be happy with this.

The leaders of Russia, France, Germany, and Ukraine renewed a cease-fire agreement after sixteen hours of negotiations in Minsk. The cease-fire is expected to take effect on Sunday and calls for the withdrawal of heavy weapons from front lines and constitutional reform to grant more autonomy to eastern Ukraine.

The deal is not likely to hold for more than a short while. There are too many, including the neocons, who will instigate for war.

Meanwhile, the IMF announced a four-year, $17.5 billion rescue program for Ukraine this morning,, helping Kiev stave off bankruptcy.



That didn't take long. The first tool of the Empire speaks on the agreement:

The new ceasefire agreement in Ukraine struck after a night of talks was lambasted as "absolutely weak" by the Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaite.
