Ukrainian President threatens to break truce

Ukrainian President Threatens to Break TruceFollowing the recognition of active participation by the Army in armed clashes, Ukrainian President Piotr Poroshenko reiterated that the ceasefire in the territories subjected to the military operation could be reversed.

Poroshenko, made his scathing statement following the downing of a helicopter from the Ukrainian forces involved in the operations, on the outskirts of the city of Slavyansk, in the Donetsk region.

According to Prensa Latina News, Poroshenko asserted that the ceasefire could be reversed at any time in view of the constant breaking of the truce, without mentioning the conduct of his own troops.

Poroshenko ordered his troops to shoot without hesitation, while reports from Donbass territory confirmed the intense activities of Ukrainian army underway today, according to Russian television’s Channel One and Rossia 24.

On his Facebook website, people’s governor of Donbass Pavel Gubariov, urged Russia to send troops to bring peace to the territories of the People’s Republics of Donetsk (PRD) and Lugansk (PRL).

Gubariov said that he respected President Vladimir Putin’s decision reversing his willingness to place Russian forces in Ukraine, but he reiterated the need for troops to bring peace in the region in view of the breaking of the truce by the Ukrainian government.

The truce had been announced by Poroshenko last Friday, initially set until the evening on June 27th, with an unilateral ultimatum for militants to lay arms down and surrender.

The United Nations estimates that more than 40,000 Ukrainians have been displaced and taken refuge as consequence of the military operation in the eastern regions.
