Separatists take military oath, denounce ceasefire

They are taking an oath to fight in eastern Ukraine. In a ceremony in Donetsk on the town's Lenin Square they pledged to defend themselves until "the last drop of blood." This comes a day after Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko offered a peace plan. An offer the self-proclaimed Donbass Region Governor Pavel Gubarev refuses. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) SELF-PROCLAIMED DONBASS REGION GOVERNOR, PAVEL GUBAREV, SAYING: "We are taking a military oath today. That means that the rebels become an army and we will continue to arm ourselves to defend our native land from the fascist, neo-fascist invasion." On Friday, Poroshenko ordered a ceasefire to allow his peace plan to take root. The ceasefire ends at 10 p.m. on June 27. The Kremlin has denounced the move -- calling it an ultimatum rather than a peace offering
