Aside from the ceasefire, the plan called for stopping offensives by all forces in southeastern Ukraine; Ukrainian armed forces to pull back and out of range of residential areas in the southeast; deploying international observers to monitor the ceasefire; an end to airstrikes; an exchange of all detainees; opening up humanitarian corridors; and repairing damaged infrastructure.
