KIEV: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said late Monday he would not extend a truce with pro-Russian rebels in the country's east, vowing instead to go on the attack.

"After examining the situation I have decided, as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, not to extend the unilateral ceasefire," Poroshenko said in an address to the nation.
