KIEV: Ukrainian government forces launched new military operations against pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country Tuesday, attacking separatist bases, the parliamentary speaker said.

"I can inform you that in the morning the active phase of the anti-terrorist operation was renewed. Our armed forces are carrying out strikes on terrorist bases and checkpoints," speaker Oleksander Turchynov told parliament after President Petro Poroshenko announced he would not renew a cease-fire.
