According to a press conference from DPR prime minister Kazharchenko , representatives from Russia , France , and Germany were at the signing . Conspicuously absent : any representative from the United States . It was implied that those nations could act as guarantors of any agreement reached by the waring parties . The agreement as far as has been told , is a cease fire in order to discuss and negotiate the situation as a whole . Cease fires of the past have been a joke , violated by one side or another , I think the attrition and seriousness of the war has started to kick in , and asking other countries into the discussion is a sign of that . Makes sense , Russia for the DPR/LPR , France and Germany for Ukraine .

That is not the interview , but rather interesting comments about how they view the American people vs the American Government .
