Russia's new border wall barrier seals off Crimea

A new ceasefire in eastern Ukraine between Russian-backed separatists and government forces begins on Saturday.

    A new ceasefire in eastern Ukraine between Russian-backed separatists and government forces is due to begin on Saturday. It's one of the several ceasefires since Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 in violation of international laws.

    It follows the construction of a border fence built by Russia, sealing off Crimea. Several European leaders have condemned the barrier and called for a definitive end to the conflict.
