The warning raised fears of a return to war in the country, where the United Nations has noted an ominous recent surge in violence.

Local pro-Ukrainian activists said large numbers of Russian soldiers and armoured vehicles were in the area.

“The occupiers are conducting manoeuvres and we should understand that at any minute, at any hour, they could start a large-scale or small-scale attack,” said Andriy Lysenko, a military spokesman for Ukraine’s presidential administration.
