Ukraine's foreign ministry has said that the 'anti-terror operation' against pro-Russian separatists has been put on hold over Easter.
The SBU, Ukraine's state security service said the suspension was "linked to the implementation of the Geneva agreement and the Easter holidays".
Tensions remain high in eastern Ukraine after at least three died in a day of shooting during what was supposed to be an Easter truce.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News, the Ukrainian Prime Minister warns of the dangers of unchecked Russian expansion and aggression.
Russia, the US and the EU say that all sides have agreed to steps to "de-escalate" the crisis in Ukraine at talks in Geneva.
