Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Crimea and recent escalation of violence in eastern Ukraine appear to be coordinated efforts to undermine the truce reached in February, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius said on Monday.

"Putin's trip to Ukraine's Crimea & increased fatal violence by separatists look like coordinated efforts to undermine Minsk agreements," the minister tweeted on Monday afternoon.

The Ukrainian government and Russia-supported separatists said on Monday that 10 people had been killed in eastern Ukraine over the last 24 hours. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has accused his Russian counterpart of having further raised tensions in Ukraine after visiting Crimea.
