Ukraine’s Talks With Separatists Yield No Deal as Clashes Flare

Updated on

Talks between separatist officials and representatives of Ukraine’s military ended in Donetsk without an agreement as the authorities in Kiev accused rebels of reinforcing their positions in the country’s east.

The negotiations will continue on Dec. 31 in Luhansk, another rebel-held stronghold in eastern Ukraine, a news website run by the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, known by its Russian abbreviation DAN, reported, citing a local official it didn’t identify. The talks focused on a cease-fire, a prisoner swap, pulling back heavy weapons and implementing peace agreements, it said.
