Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was about to sign an order for a temporary unilateral ceasefire by Ukrainian forces in the east of the country, the interior ministry's website said.
As the president said, he will shortly sign a decree for a temporary ceasefire.
This is being done so that terrorists can put down their arms.
Those who do not do this will be eliminated.
