Russia warned on Monday that the Ukraine crisis was on the verge of turning into a third world war, accusing Kyiv of playing games at peace talks, a day after visiting US officials indicated Ukrainian military could repel Moscow’s invasion.

The battle has sparked an outpouring of Western backing, with weaponry pouring into Ukraine to aid in the fight against Russian forces.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking to Russian news outlets, criticised Kyiv’s stance to the stalled peace negotiations, saying the prospect of World War III is “real.”

“It’s genuine; don’t underestimate it.”
