KIEV (AFP) - Ukraine's acting president accused Russia on Tuesday of harbouring "brutal plans" to destabilise the south-east of his ex-Soviet country by backing separatist militants.
"Russia had and continues to have brutal plans," Oleksandr Turchynov told a session of parliament. "They want to set fire not only to the Donetsk region but to the entire south and east - from Kharkiv to the Odessa region."
