Relations between Moscow and Kiev escalated after the annexation of Crimea to Russia in March 2014. Kiev says Moscow is responsible for the conflict in the South-East of the country and regularly accuses it of supplying weapons self-proclaimed republics of Donbass, which calls the Russian occupation authorities. Russia has repeatedly denied such accusations.
