BRUSSELS - Russia must be transparent about military exercises along Ukraine's border and not take any steps that could be misinterpreted or "lead to miscalculation during a delicate time," US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Thursday.

"I'm closely watching Russia's military exercises along the Ukrainian border," Hagel said at a NATO news conference. "I expect Russia to be transparent about these activities, and I urge them not to take any steps that could be misinterpreted, or lead to miscalculation during a very delicate time -- a time of great tension."
