Ukrainian President Threatens to Nix Ceasefire

Ukraine’s newly elected President, Petro Poroshenko, said that he is likely to cancel the week-old ceasefire he had declared last Friday in eastern Ukraine, due to the downing of a transport helicopter at the hands of pro-Russian separatists.

Nine soldiers were killed in the event.
