(MOSCOW) — Tensions are flaring between Russia and Ukraine.
Ukrainian officials say a military transport plane was shot down Monday near the Russian border and the shot may have come from the Russian side.
The accusation comes after Russian authorities said a man was killed in Russia over the weekend by an errant rocket from Ukraine. It’s all led to renewed fears of a military clash.
NATO says over 10,000 Russian troops are back on the border.
A Kremlin spokesman on Monday, however, said fears of a Russian attack are “nonsense.”
