Russia is continuing to build up the number of troops it has on the Ukrainian border, prompting Nato’s military commander to issue a warning.

Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen Philip Breedlove said the build-up of troops was making Nato especially worried about Moldova’s Trans-Dniester region, the BBC reports.

Foreign Secretary William Hague is meeting the US, Canadian, Polish, French and Georgian foreign ministers to try to progress conversations with Russia and work out what to do next.

This morning he tweeted: “Very concerned about Eastern #Ukraine. Meeting fellow Foreign Ministers in The Hague for talks on next steps and relations with Russia.

“Will meet my US, Canadian, Polish, French and Georgian counterparts. We remain united in response to Russian actions in Crimea.”

 

Hague wrote a piece in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph warning that Russia faces long-term “isolation and stagnation” over its actions, and that it was time to consider a “new state of relations” with Russia.
