Russia’s foreign ministry on Tuesday demanded the right to visit two citizens detained last week in eastern Ukraine who Kiev says are Russian soldiers guilty of carrying out “terrorist acts” on its territory.

Kiev said on Monday the two men had killed Ukrainian troops and would be prosecuted. It has used them to support its accusations of direct Russian participation in the separatist conflict. Moscow denies active military involvement.
