Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said the US is "running the show" in Ukraine.

Lavrov told Russia Today it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its anti-terror operation against pro-Russian gunmen during a visit by US Vice-President Joe Biden.

Kiev and the West say Moscow commands the gunmen - claims denied by Russia.

In the past month, pro-Russian militants have overrun several cities in the eastern Donetsk region.

They have occupied public buildings and installed their own officials, in similar tactics to those used to take over the Ukrainian region of Crimea earlier in the year.
