Nato attacks Russia for ‘deliberate destabilisation’

Imperialist meddlers denounce Moscow

NATO foreign ministers condemned what they called Russia's "continued and deliberate destabilisation" in Ukraine on Tuesday.

However, immediately after placing the blame squarely on Russia's shoulders, the cold-war alliance promptly announced it was escalating cash for the Kiev government's military.

US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed Russia's actions "undermined the security of Ukraine and have serious implications for the stability and security of the entire Euro-Atlantic area."

Nato announced the creation of so-called trust funds to aid the modernisation of Ukraine's military.

Secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg added that member countries had also approved a new interim quick-reaction military force to "protect themselves from Russia."

The initial unit, to be up and running in early 2015, is designed to be supplanted later by a permanent force.

The ministers also approved stepped-up air patrols.
