    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's upper house of parliament called on lawmakers in Ukraine to put an end to the Ukrainian troops' "criminal acts" in the southeast on Wednesday amid mounting clashes this week leading to a spike in deaths.

    "Today I propose to express a consolidated position of the Council of the Federation and, taking into account the emergency circumstances, to appeal to the Verkhovna Rada to put an end to the Ukrainian military's criminal acts in the southeast of the country," Committee for International Affairs chair Konstantin Kosachev said.

    Council of the Federation Chairperson Valentina Matvienko and other senators have upheld Kosachev's proposal.
