APsplainin | Protesters in Ukraine rally against election in rebel east
Ukraine, Russia and Russia-backed separatists on Tuesday signed a tentative agreement on guidelines for holding a local election in eastern Ukraine, where a five-year conflict between the rebels and Ukrainian troops has killed more than 13,000 people. France and Germany, which help broker the talks, hailed the agreement.

Ukraine's newly elected President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has cast the deal [with WHOM?] as an intermediate step needed to organize a summit with the leaders of Russia, France and Germany to push for a peaceful settlement [named WHAT?].
It was Zelenskiy's predecessor Petro Poroshenko [WHO?] signed the 2015 peace agreement that envisaged a sweeping autonomy for the separatist regions in the east and an amnesty for the rebels -- a provision that was never implemented because it was resented by many In Ukraine.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
