The Russian Foreign Ministry has warned the Kiev authorities of ‘irreversible’ consequences for continued shelling of the Russian territory which killed one man and wounded two women.

      According to the Russian authorities, a shell exploded in the border town of Donetsk on Sunday morning.

      This is not the first incident when artillery pieces hit the Russian territory bordering Ukraine.

      Russian journalists working in Ukraine have been subject to abuse, and three of them were killed.

      Moscow has announced it will not to intervene militarily but the West demands more action to de-escalate the situation.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the UK has denied visas to Russian officials heading to the Farnborough International Airshow Trade 2014 over its alleged involvement in Ukraine in a move that appears to escalate tension between Moscow and the West.

      Russia has sparked a wave of criticism after it incorporated Crimea into its territory following a referendum on the peninsula with a large ethnic Russian population.

      The US and the EU imposed a raft of sanctions on Russian officials and individuals with close ties to the Kremlin.

      The US also put space and military cooperation on hold, followed by some of its NATO allies, including the UK.

      Trade between the EU and Russia fell sharply in 1Q 2014, echoing a sour political relationship between Moscow and Brussels split over the Ukraine crisis.

      According to Eurostat, EU imports from Russia dropped more than 9 percent in the first quarter of this year totaling €49.1 billion in March, versus €54.4 billion in the first quarter of 2013.
