Krasnogorivka, Ukraine—A Ukrainian soldier waits on the front line near Donetsk, Ukraine, on August 12. Russia said it had foiled an attack in Crimea by “sabotage-terrorist groups” backed by Ukraine, raising fears of escalating tensions between Russia-backed separatists and the government in Kiev. Russia has recently increased its military presence in Crimea, which it annexed from Ukraine in 2014, prompting Western sanctions. Ukraine denied backing a plot in Crimea, and some analysts saw Russia’s accusations as a ploy to strengthen its hand before planned talks next month on the status of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.Launch Slideshow 4 PHOTOS
