US Vice President Joe Biden touched down at Kiev airport for a two-day visit seen as a show of support for crisis-hit Ukraine's pro-Western leaders.

Biden's arrival came as Moscow accused Kiev of violating an international accord aimed at defusing a separatist uprising in Ukraine's pro-Russian east.

On arrival, the US vice president was taken to a briefing with US embassy staff
 
On Tuesday he was to meet the country's interim president, Oleksandr Turchynov, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and lawmakers.

A senior administration official told reporters travelling with Biden that the vice president would be discussing security, politics, economy and energy issues with the Ukrainian leaders.
