Key talks begin amid hopes for Ukraine truce (NATO would not "collectively" supply arms to Ukraine)

A busy day in terms of diplomacy for the Ukraine crisis is under way as NATO leaders meet on the second day of a summit in Wales and ceasefire talks are scheduled to take place in the Belarusian capital.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and the main pro-Russian rebel leader said they would both order ceasefires on Friday, provided that an agreement is reached on a new peace plan in Minsk to end the five-month war in Ukraine's east.

The annoucements came after a week in which the pro-Moscow separatists scored major victories with what NATO says is the open support of thousands of Russian troops and armour.
