Russia accuses Ukrainian troops of gunfire across border

MOSCOW, July 29 (Reuters) - Russia repeated accusations on Tuesday that Kiev’s forces had fired across the border from eastern Ukraine into Russian territory with assault rifles and grenade launchers.

“We officially demand Kiev stop firing at the sovereign territory of the Russian Federation,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Kiev has denied firing into Russian territory.
