Donetsk: Separatist leaders in two main areas of Ukraine`s east have agreed to observe a ceasefire until June 27, one of them, Alexander Boroday, said on Monday.

Speaking after meeting a "contact group" which included a former Ukrainian president, Moscow`s envoy to Kiev and a representative of the OSCE security watchdog, Boroday said:

"The consultation ended with authorities of the Luhansk and Donetsk Republics agreeing to maintain a ceasefire for their part … until the 27th."

Their truce will run parallel to a unilateral Ukrainian military ceasefire that was declared by President Petro Poroshenko on Friday as part of a peace plan to end an insurgency by pro-Russian separatists in the Russian-speaking east of Ukraine.
