Kiev accuses Putin of seeking to 'eliminate' Ukraine
Kiev accused Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday of seeking to "eliminate" Ukraine as an independent state, despite signing up to a fragile peace pact to end months of bloody conflict.
The comments by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk came as Ukraine's military said it had beaten back a major rebel assault on Donetsk airport, a key battleground in the five-month insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
Yatsenyuk told an international conference in Kiev that Putin was deliberately keeping Ukraine in a state of war to create a "frozen conflict" in Russia's backyard.
"His aim is not just to take Donetsk and Lugansk," Yatsenyuk said, referring to the industrial regions where separatists fighting Kiev's rule have declared their own republics.
"His goal is to take the entire Ukraine... he wants to eliminate Ukraine as an independent country," Yatsenyuk said. "He wants to restore the Soviet Union."
Yatsenyuk said Kiev could not negotiate with Moscow on its own and needed the United States and the EU to guarantee Ukraine's sovereignty and sign up to efforts to halt the war that has killed more than 2,700 people since April.
