Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko has set out a peace plan for regions in eastern Ukraine by proposing a unilateral ceasefire by security forces. Prosohenko expressed hope that the truce would be able to end the conflict in eastern Ukraine at the earliest.
Local media reports however said that the separatist group has rejected the proposal. The solution emerged after Poroshenko held a telephonic conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The ceasefire was agreed by both leaders as a readymade solution to end the unrest in eastern parts of the country.
Over 30 people were killed in attacks in the region on Tuesday alone and security situation in regions such as Donetsk and Luhansk have deteriorated. Civilians residing in the region are fleeing the place fearing further violence.
Local media reported about a explosion at central Ukraine's Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod Pipeline. There were no reports of injury or disruption to gas supply services.
