AFP , Saturday 17 May 2014

Moscow on Saturday questioned whether Ukraine's 25 May presidential election can be held democratically amid continued fighting in the east of the country.

"Can elections held amid the thunder of guns really meet the democratic norms of the electoral process?" the foreign ministry said in a statement, urging authorities in Kiev to "immediately end military operations" in the country's southeast.
