Russia has responded to the killing of five pro-Russian fighters in Ukraine on Thursday by mounting military drills close to their joint border.
The Russian military held the drills in the Krasnodar region close to Ukraine, setting up a competition for jet fighter pilots.
Russian President Putin said it would be a "very serious crime" if Ukraine was using its army on its own people and threatened "consequences."
Clashes between armed separatists and government forces at a security checkpoint leave up to five pro-Russian rebels dead, raising fears that Russian troops might enter the fray. Mana Rabiee reports.
