KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian government forces have no intention of renouncing a ceasefire in the separatist-held east of the country, a military spokesman said on Thursday.

"There is no intention of abandoning it," spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters, despite warning that the pro-Russian separatists were beefing up their forces and could launch a new offensive.
