Ukraine troops 'optimistic' about military withdrawal

Ukrainian and pro-Russian rebels say they are withdrawing their heavy weapons from the front line in eastern Ukraine under the terms of the ceasefire agreed in Minsk, Belarus.

The process is yet to be officially confirmed by international monitors from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
