Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for an 'immediate halt' to fighting in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

Ukraine's foreign ministry said: "There are grounds to believe that Russian terrorists are being sent onto Ukrainian territory, organised and financed under the direct control of the Kremlin and Russian special forces."
