Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko announced on Friday a unilateral one-week cease-fire by his anti-terrorist forces to allow pro-Russian rebels in the eastern regions to disarm or leave the country. Poroshenko called the 7-day cease-fire, which was to begin later on Friday, a first-step in a larger agreement, not only giving separatists a chance to disarm, but also for pro-Russia rebels to leave the country, the Kiev Post reports. He called on separatists to lay down their weapons, or else be "destroyed," the President said. Speaking to parliament, Poroshenko said the cease-fire would be followed by talks, new local elections and a jobs program. He warned, however, that government forces will return fire if fired upon during the period.
