Russia slams UK's claims of its actions in Ukraine

The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the United Kingdom over its claims Moscow is seeking to install a leader in Ukraine that will work in its favor.

The ministry described Britain's findings as "nonsense" and urged it and its allies to "halt provocative activities." "The disinformation spread by the British Foreign Office is yet another evidence that it is the NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization] countries, led by the Anglo-Saxons, that are escalating tensions around Ukraine," its statement read.

The remarks come as a response to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's report in which it claimed Moscow is trying to have a pro-Russian leader take over power in Ukraine and considering an invasion of that country.
