The incident comes after Russia has amassed more than 100,000 troops close to Ukraine’s border while demanding that NATO pledge not to accept Kyiv as a member.

Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine have accused Ukrainian forces of using mortars, grenade launchers and a machine gun in four separate incidents.Russia’s defence ministry said troops and military equipment from its western military district’s tank army were returning to their permanent deployment bases after drills.

Ukraine said it has seen no evidence of that and the United States said it suspected it had in fact increased its presence.
