"There has been a Russian build-up, both along the borders between Russia and Ukraine but also inside eastern Ukraine, with a steady flow of heavy equipment, tanks, artillery, ammunition, air defense systems and a lot of training," alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference.
"So they have the capacity, the capability to launch new attacks with very little warning time. But of course no one can say anything with certainty about the intention."
