Ukraine crisis: BBC films as troops told of peace deal

News of the peace deal spread to soldiers on the front line. The United States has welcomed a ceasefire agreement aimed at ending the war in Ukraine but demanded that Russia end its support for the separatists. US Secretary of State John Kerry said sanctions on Russia could be eased but only if its actions matched its words. The leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France sealed a deal on Thursday morning after lengthy talks in Belarus. The ceasefire is due to begin in eastern Ukraine at midnight on Saturday but both sides remain sceptical. Ian Pannell reports from eastern Ukraine.
