"Opening a day of intense international diplomacy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday accused Ukrainian's government of dragging its feet on implementing last year's cease-fire agreement. Although last year's cease-fire between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian government forces has largely held, none of the political elements, including calling a local election there, has been implemented. Fighting in Ukraine's [former, now seceded] industrial heartland which has close ties to Russia has killed more than 9,100 people and left large swathes of land under [local secessionist] control."
