Insurgents promised Monday to honor a cease-fire declared by the Ukrainian president and engage in more talks to help resolve the conflict that has left hundreds dead in eastern Ukraine. The announcement came on the first day of discussions between a former Ukrainian president, the Russian ambassador, European officials and the separatists. The negotiations were launched in line with President Petro Poroshenko's peace plan, which started with a weeklong unilateral cease-fire Friday to uproot the mutiny that has engulfed the nation's industrial east. Hundreds of people have been killed in the fighting and tens of thousands have fled their homes.
