“We will attack and we will liberate our land. The end of the ceasefire is our response to terrorists, rebels, looters, all those who mock the civilians who paralyze the economy of the region; who rip the payment of salaries, pensions, stipends; who undermine the railroads, destroy water pipes, those who deprive a normal peaceful life,” according to a statement on Poroshenko’s website that he broadcast to the nation early this morning.

Poroshenko’s move is a highly risky bid to end the separatist uprisings that began in April and have claimed the lives of more than 180 Ukrainian servicemen, including at least 27 since the ceasefire was announced on June 20.

Poroshenko announces the end of the ceasefire and the resumption of Kyiv’s military operation in a video address on July 1.
