Chechen leader denies sending troops to Ukraine

DONETSK, Ukraine: As the fighting becomes more ferocious in eastern Ukraine, Chechnya's Moscow-backed leader insisted on Wednesday that he had not sent any of his famous troops to help pro-Russia insurgents but said some Chechens may have gone there on their own.

Scores of rebel fighters have been killed this week around the major eastern city of Donetsk, and Ukrainian border guards have reported at least one gunbattle as they blocked groups of armed men trying to cross into Ukraine from Russia. Ukraine and the west have accused Moscow of fomenting the unrest, but Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied sending any troops to help the insurgents.
