Ukraine President Ends Cease-Fire

The Ukrainian president Monday night said he would not extend a unilateral cease-fire with pro-Russian separatists fighting in the eastern part of the country, NBC News reported. In a statement on his website President Petro Poroshenko said "We will attack and we will liberate our land." Earlier in the day, Poroshenko discussed the 10-day cease-fire in a phone call with the leaders of Russia, Germany and France, saying the rebels had not "fulfilled the conditions." Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin had stressed the need to extend the ceasefire in that conversation.
