NEW YORK (AP) — Stock futures are climbing on Monday, as investors look to shake off the worst week for the stock market in three months. Citigroup's shares rose after it turned in better earnings and revenue than Wall Street expected.
By Natalia Zinets and Richard Balmforth KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine on Monday accused Russian army officers of fighting alongside separatists in the east of the country and said Moscow was once more building up its troops on the joint border. President Petro Poroshenko held an emergency meeting of his security chiefs after a weekend of Ukrainian air strikes on rebel positions near the border with Russia and charges by Moscow that Kiev killed a Russian man with a cross-border shell. The war of words between Kiev and Moscow and intense fighting, in which Ukrainian forces say they inflicted heavy losses on the rebels, marked a sharp escalation in the three and a half month conflict in which several hundred Ukrainian servicemen, civilians and rebels have been killed.
