Moscow: Russia`s announcement that it will recognize separatist elections in eastern Ukraine "undermines" attempts to end a six-month war there, a senior Ukrainian foreign ministry official said Tuesday.

"Russia`s intentions directly contradict the Minsk (peace) accord, undermine the agreed process on deescalation and peaceful resolution, and continue to weaken trust in it (Russia) as a reliable international partner," the official, Dmytro Kuleba, told AFP.
