Russia Agrees to International Monitors in Ukraine


Russia on Friday accepted the deployment of an international monitoring team to Ukraine that officials said will have free access to regions throughout the country, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

The development followed more than a week of stonewalling by Russia of a push by all other members of the 57-nation Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to send such a mission, which they hope will prevent an escalation of tensions in Ukraine's east and south, where there are large Russian-speaking populations.
