Ukraine: 'Build-up of rebel reinforcements' sparks concern

  • The United States and EU have raised concerns over reports of a separatist build-up in eastern Ukraine, according to media reports.

    As shelling near the rebel-controlled city of Donetsk increased, there were reports of convoys of tanks and heavy weapons not far from the city.

    Russia has denied claims that it is behind the apparent reinforcement. 

    Federica Mogherini, the EU head of foreign policy, described the reports as “a very worrying development.” The US said it was “very concerned” by reports of the convoys.
