Ukraine's Poroshenko 'to order unilateral ceasefire'
Ukraine's president has set out proposals for a peace plan for eastern Ukraine involving a unilateral ceasefire by government forces.
Petro Poroshenko said the temporary truce - expected "in hours or days" - would allow pro-Russian militants in the region to lay down their arms.
His comments come after he held a phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The BBC's Daniel Sandford explained the latest reaction to the proposal.
