The struggle over Ukraine's Black Sea peninsula, Crimea, has created a political rift between Russia and the West. DW reporter Karsten Kaminski has been chatting to young people in Moscow and shares his insights with Pulse.
Ukraine's army has accused pro-Russian separatists of firing weapons shortly after a cease-fire between the two sides came into force. The rebels say they are abiding by the truce, calling Kyiv's claims a "provocation."
Government officials and pro-Russian separatists have agreed on the terms of a full ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. European leaders had demanded such a deal before they would agree to holding a new summit on Ukraine.
A ceasefire backed by Putin and Zelenskiy has gone into effect in Ukraine. The reconciliation attempt marks the latest in a series of failed peace efforts between government forces and the pro-Russian rebels.
For the third time in a year President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has promised Ukrainians a "comprehensive" cease-fire in Donbass. Looming elections rather than progress on the ground are behind that, says DW's Nick Connolly.
