US Secretary of State John Kerry has warned Russia that it will break international agreements if it recognises an election planned by separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine.

The self-declared republics of Donetsk and Luhansk plan to elect regional leaders and parliaments on Sunday.

Moscow has already said it intends to recognise the result of the ballot.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko argues that the polls threaten the peace process with Kiev.

Ukrainian troops have been battling the pro-Russian rebels in the east. At least 3,700 people have been killed in the fighting, and many more have fled to other parts of Ukraine or to Russia.
