KIEV, January 18 (Sputnik) — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko vowed that Kiev authorities would regain control over the entire territory of the Donbas Region in the country's east, UNIAN news agency reported on Sunday.

"We will be victorious, there will be peace in Ukraine… We will protect and revive our state," Poroshenko was quoted as saying.

The Volnovakha bus attack took the lives of 12 people and injured 18 others.

Kiev had previously claimed that the bus had been hit by rockets fired from the east, the direction of a town where local independence forces had been allegedly present at the time. Authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) stressed they had not been involved in the attack.
