Peace Train Rolls Again Thru Donbass

RT travels to eastern Ukraine to see how a restored rail line in the Donbas is reuniting families separated by months of heavy fighting.

For now there is come stability although the Kiev regime, under the military training of US Army troops now inside Ukraine, is still shelling some eastern towns.  How long this pause in the civil war will last is anyone's guess.  Some speculate that Kiev will resume their assaults on the east come late spring. 

The Minsk-2 ceasefire agreement is not being implemented by Kiev - they are supposed to start serious negotiations to give local autonomy to the Donbas but so far not much is happening and early concerns are that Kiev will create a sham process that is doomed to fail which would then be blamed on Moscow and the self-defense forces in the east.  Unless Kiev enters authentic negotiations with the people in the Donbas then the process will not bear any real fruit.
