Reuters: Ukraine peace talks aborted as civilians die in east

WNU Editor: The war is now focused on the battle for Debaltseve. Apparently Ukrainian forces are now surrounded, and they have been told to surrender. Artillery strikes on civilian areas are also continuing .... heavily casualties are being reported. All peace/truce talks have now been suspended. The above AP video report shows how violent and destructive the conflict has become.
