Ukrainian President Extends Cease-Fire for 3 Days

(BRUSSELS) — The Ukrainian president’s office says he has extended a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine for three more days.

President Petro Poroshenko’s office said that the weeklong cease-fire that ended Friday has been extended until 10 p.m. Local time Monday.

A leader of pro-Russian insurgents said Friday they would also extend the cease-fire if Poroshenko does so.

The cease-fire has been shaky, frequently broken by fighting, with the government and the rebels blaming each other for its violations.
