September 30 is one of the most tragic dates in the 20th century. On this day in 1938, the Prime Ministers of Great Britain and France Neville Chamberlain and Edouard Daladier met with Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in Munich and signed a settlement on the transferring to Germany of the Sudetenland area of Czechoslovakia. The representatives of the latter country were only invited to be coerced into signing the pact. This notorious agreement became known as the Munich Betrayal. Poland and Hungary later occupied more areas of Czechoslovakia.


The heads of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics have issued a statement on a unilateral ceasefire starting at 12 am on September 15, under which all people’s militia units in Donetsk and Lugansk are prohibited from responding to fire from the Ukrainian army and the National Guard.
