The Novorussian ceasefire agreement + English translation

As seen on the Russian text on the OSCE page, and now Gleb Bazov sent Saker the translation.  To say that one is under-impressed by this text would be an understatement.  It should also be noted that many well informed sources spoke of a 14 points plan.  Are two more points held in secret? What is certain is that this documents is imprecise, nebulous, ambiguous and otherwise vague to such a degree that one would argue that it is basically impossible to implement. 

Knowing the degree to which Russian diplomats are normally maniacally fastidious and pedantic with words, one can only conclude that they have deliberately sabotaged this agreement and that it's sole use what to deflate the bellicose mood of the NATO summit.  But as a basis for a real ceasefire it is useless, nevermind a real negotiation for a final status agreement or peace treaty.
