Ukraine is "still in a state of war" with neighbouring Russia despite a cease-fire between Kiev's forces and Moscow-backed rebels in the east, the country's prime minister said as a second convoy of Russian trucks rolled into Ukraine.

Speaking at a conference with politicians and business leaders in Kiev, Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Russian President Vladimir Putin's goal is "to take the entire Ukraine".

Donetsk city council said there had been fighting near the airport overnight. Two shells hit homes in the area but there were no reports of casualities.
