MOSCOW, June 11 (Reuters) - Russia accused the United States on Thursday of forcing Kiev to continue the conflict in east Ukraine and urged Washington to fully implement a treaty on eliminating intermediate-range and shorter-range missiles.

In a statement responding to a U.S. State Department report accusing Russia of violating its arms treaty obligations, the Russian Foreign Ministry also said Russia was not carrying out any "unusual military activity". (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova, Editing by Timothy Heritage)
