Ukraine to ‘re-examine’ peace plan with rebels


KIEV: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko threatened to tear up a peace plan with pro-Russian separatist rebels on Monday after they defied Kiev and held elections intended to demonstrate their independence. “These pseudo-elections are a gross violation” of a September truce deal, he said in an address to the nation. Poroshenko said he and security chiefs would “re-examine” Kiev’s commitments to the ceasefire deal on Tuesday, including “abolition” of a key element that offered separatists autonomy within Ukraine’s existing borders.
