Poland hopes for full implementation of ceasefire in Ukraine – President

Poland is hoping for a full implementation of the ceasefire in Ukraine, President Bronislaw Komorowski said Thursday in a speech on the results of the Minsk summit.

The ceasefire of February 15, linked to withdrawing heavy weaponry from the Donbas region, was agreed Thursday morning after all-night talks in the Belarusian capital Minsk between German chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, Ukrainian President Petro Proshenko and Russian President Valdimir Putin.

“The ceasefire deal is good news for everyone, including Poland. We are counting on full implementation of this ceasefire as a chance for at least reducing the losses, a chance to end fighting and also perhaps an opportunity to open prospects for a lasting peace in the region”, Komorowski said.
