Russia and the United States stepped up their rhetoric over the spiralling crisis in Ukraine, as pro-Moscow militants shored up control of key buildings in the country's increasingly chaotic east.

US Secretary of State John Kerry hit back, urging Moscow to "leave Ukraine in peace" and vowing to "defend every single inch" of NATO territory.
