Ukraine ceasefire: How is it holding one month on?

A ceasefire has been in place in eastern Ukraine for almost a month.

While it has not been fully observed, with clashes, shelling and deaths in some areas, it has meant some let up in a conflict that has been raging for nearly a year.

On Tuesday, the Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko, confirmed that pro-Russian rebels had withdrawn a significant amount of weaponry from the frontlines.

He added that Ukraine had withdrawn the majority of its rocket and heavy artillery systems.

Fergal Keane travelled to both the Ukrainian and the rebel frontlines near Donetsk to meet the men and women fighting on each side.
