MOSCOW: Russia warned on Friday that Ukraine's use of the army against its own people in the east will lead to catastrophe and urged the West to renounce its "destructive policies."

"As we repeatedly warned, the use of the army against one's own people is a crime and is leading Ukraine towards catastrophe," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "We firmly demand that the West renounce its destructive policies towards Ukraine."
