KIEV, July 1 (Xinhua) -- The Ukrainian troops resumed a military operation against insurgents in the eastern regions after the end of a 10-day ceasefire, Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said on Tuesday.

The announcement came after Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko decided not to extend the ceasefire in the violence-hit regions.

In a national address on Monday, Poroshenko stressed he would be ready to resume the truce if all the sides observed his peace plan.

The Ukrainian president announced a week-long ceasefire by the government forces on June 21 to seek a peaceful solution to the conflict, and later extended it to June 30.

However, the insurgents in the largely Russian-speaking east of Ukraine had allegedly continued their attacks on the goernment troops during the ceasefire.
