Russia's foreign ministry says it is outraged by an apparent deadly shootout in Eastern Ukraine.

The country's state media is reporting that up to 5 people were killed after gunmen attacked a checkpoint manned by pro-Russian activists near Sloviansk. They are blaming Ukrainian nationalists.

In return nationalist sources have pinned the attack on pro-Russian forces, describing it as a 'blasphemous provocation of Christians'.

The Interior Ministry will only confirm one death.
