Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko warned yesterday, that his country must be ready to defend itself should a peace plan aimed at ending a 5-month war with pro-Russian insurgents, fall through.

The pro-Western leader's comments followed a warning by a top defence 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.

Poroshenko delivered an 80-minute televised defence of his high-stakes decision on Tuesday to hand a wedge of the industrial east three years of effective autonomy in return for the rebel-held area remaining a part of Ukraine.
