US President Barack Obama has told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that Russia has flouted international law by sending troops to Ukraine.

In a 90-minute telephone conversation, Obama urged the Russian leader to pull forces back to bases in Crimea.

Putin responded by saying that Moscow reserves the right to protect its interests and those of Russian speakers in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Canada has recalled its ambassador to Moscow for consultations.
