Ukraine will defend itself if truce fails


KIEV: President Petro Poroshenko warned late on Sunday that Ukraine must be ready to defend itself should a peace plan aimed at ending a five-month war with pro-Russian insurgents fall through. The pro-Western leader’s comments followed a warning by a top defense spokesman that Ukraine would not pull back its forces from the front line as required under a new truce until all sides put down their guns.
