NATO has announced a full review of its co-operation with Russia to try to pressure Moscow into backing down on Ukraine, and said it would "intensify" its engagement with Ukraine.

The organisation's secretary-general, Anders Rasmussen, also announced that the military alliance was suspending a joint mission with Russia involving the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons.

NATO's announcement came as top diplomats from Europe and the United States broke off a meeting with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, as a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart, Andrey Deshchitsia, also failed.
