Ukraine ceasefire: Estonia PM speaks to BBC

Estonia's prime minister has warned of an escalation in violence before Ukraine's ceasefire deal comes into place on Saturday.

Speaking to the BBC, Taavi Roivas said: "The worrying thing is that we still have two days to go until the ceasefire, and... I'm afraid there will be an escalation from the Russian side during that two days".

Intense fighting has been reported in eastern Ukraine, a day after the peace deal was reached in Minsk.

The ceasefire is due to begin in eastern Ukraine after midnight (22:00 GMT).
