Russia and rebels want to take Mariupol before cease-fire

Since yesterday's "peace talks" rebels and Russian "tourists" intensified fighting over Mariupol and Debaltseve. According to Ukrainian inteligence reports the 10,000 Russian troops that are currently in Eastern Ukraine received orders from Moscow to take thouse 2 cities.

Mariupol controls the only land route to Russian occupied Crimea. Debaltseve is an important communication, railroads, center. According to CNN,  see Forlorn City... from 2/11 post, the city is already devastated and 90% of population have already escaped.

The push comes now so after cease-fire takes effect Ukrainian troops would not be able to take them back.

The BIG question is: why did European leaders agreed to cease-fire to take effect on Sunday and immediately?
