Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko announced on Friday a unilateral one-week cease-fire by his anti-terrorist forces to allow pro-Russian rebels in the eastern regions to disarm or leave the country. Poroshenko called the 7-day cease-fire, which was to begin later on Friday, a first-step in a larger agreement, not only giving separatists a chance to disarm, but also for pro-Russia rebels to leave the country, the Kiev Post reports.
