BRUSSELS - Russian troops are moving closer to the border with Ukraine and Moscow continues to train rebels in the east of the country, providing them with equipment, NATO's secretary-general said on Tuesday.

"We see Russian troops moving closer to the border with Ukraine," Jens Stoltenberg, the leader of the Western alliance, told a news conference with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

"Russia continues to support separatists by training them, by providing equipment and support them by also having Russian special forces inside eastern parts of Ukraine," he said
