iStock/Thinkstock(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.”
