Pro-Russian militias in east Ukraine say they've agreed with Kiev on another round of peace talks on Friday.
The talks come amid a unilateral ceasefire by the Ukrainian government in the country's troubled east. Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has said that pro-Russian gunmen in the region have proved their interest to resolve the crisis there peacefully. The truce, which is part of the president's peace plan, will end on Friday. The ceasefire is expected to be extended in case the talks are successful. Otherwise, there's the threat of renewed violence.
