Ukraine's Petro Poroshenko was sworn in as president of his troubled
country this morning as government forces battled pro-Russian separatists
in the east.
Taking the oath in an inauguration ceremony in parliament, Poroshenko, who
will be the post-Soviet country's fifth president since independence in
1991, pledged to protect Ukraine's sovereignty and independence and
safeguard the rights and freedoms of its citizens.
