UK says new Russian sanctions could be lifted if ceasefire holds

UK PM David Cameron said new sanctions against Russia could be lifted if the warring sides in Ukraine’s conflict agree to honor a ceasefire, the details of which have now been finalized. Germany and France echoed the sentiment.

Negotiators from Kiev, eastern Ukraine rebels, Russia and the OSCE are in Minsk, and a ceasefire between the warring sides has been signed as of Friday afternoon. The ceasefire, which will come into force at 6pm, could eliminate additional sanctions being imposed on Russia from the EU.
