Moscow war exhibition is 'propaganda', says Ukraine

An interactive exhibition has opened in Moscow that aims to allow Russians to experience the "grief, pain and tears" of the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Housed within a former Soviet exhibition park, the display shows artefacts, including ammunition, personal belongings and a shrapnel-hit minibus, all overlaid with a soundtrack of war.

It clearly identifies the government in Kiev as responsible for the suffering.

Ukraine's presidential administration calls the exhibition "propaganda" and a distortion of reality - and has suggested that some of the items on show could provide evidence of crimes.

The conflict remains far from resolved - with an uneasy ceasefire currently in place.

Sarah Rainsford reports from Moscow.
