One Reporter's Inside View Of Minsk Peace Talks on Ukraine
16 February, 2015

Reporting on recent ceasefire talks in Minsk proved to be interesting, said Agence France-Presse correspondent Anna Tsukanova. Journalists there were kept waiting inside a marble palace in the Belorussian capital of Minsk while discussions for a Ukrainian ceasefire took place behind closed doors. Journalists arrived around 3pm on Tuesday and left the next afternoon around 2pm.

Presidents François Hollande of France, Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin of Russia and Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus and Chancellor Angela Merkel were present at the talks.

Tsukanova spoke with Hromadske International's Sunday Show hosts Ian Bateson and Nataliya Gumenyuk on February 15, 2015.
