MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Defence Ministry on Friday denied that Ukrainian forces had destroyed a Russian military column overnight on its territory, saying no such military force had crossed the border into eastern Ukraine, Russian state news agency RIA reported.
"There was no Russian military column that crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border either at night or during the day," the defence ministry was cited as saying in a statement, dismissing the Ukrainian report as "some kind of fantasy."
