Kiev: The defence ministries of Ukraine and Russia have agreed on a truce in Crimea until March 21, Ukraine`s acting defence minister said on Sunday.
"An agreement has been reached with (Russia`s) Black Sea Fleet and the Russian Defence Ministry on a truce in Crimea until March 21," Ihor Tenyukh told journalists on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting.
"No measures will be taken against our military facilities in Crimea during that time. Our military sites are therefore proceeding with a replenishment of reserves."
