There are signs of peace, at least temporarily, in eastern Ukraine.  A ceasefire between pro-Russian separatists and government forces appears to be largely holding a day after rebel leaders agreed to a temporary truce with lawmakers in Kyiv.

A spokesperson for Ukraine’s operation in the east says rebel forces attacked a Ukrainian base north of Slovyansk late yesterday,  but there had been no fighting overnight.

Leaders of the pro-Russian insurgency yesterday announced that they would respect a cease-fire declared by the Ukrainian president last week, raising hopes for an end to months of fighting that have killed hundreds.

In another development, Russian news agencies say President Vladimir Putin has asked parliament to cancel a March 1st resolution that sanctions the use of military force in Ukraine.
