Topic: Ukraine's president says truce not working, urges more Russia sanctions: newspaper


Ukraine's president accused Russian-backed separatists in the east of failing to respect a ceasefire with Ukrainian troops and called for further sanctions on Russia in comments to a German newspaper to be published on Monday. Ukraine's military said last week that pro-Russian rebels were using the truce to amass heavy weapons. "Ukraine has fulfilled every single point of the Minsk agreement. The ceasefire has been implemented immediately on our part, but the Russian fighters have done the exact opposite," Petro Poroshenko told the Bild newspaper.
