NATO says Russian troops in Ukraine amid fears of all-out war
NATO accused Russia of sending tanks, troops and military hardware to east Ukraine, raising fears of renewed all-out fighting and calling into question the Minsk peace deal.
Moscow denied the claims as "unfounded" and the deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Alexander Pankin, told an emergency Security Council meeting that the alliance was making "another foray into propaganda."
The United States warned it was ready to work with allies in Europe to slap more sanctions on Russia for supporting pro-Moscow separatists in east Ukraine, who have been battling Kiev since April.
