Mons: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday that Russia was continuing to arm and train rebel forces in eastern Ukraine and he called on Moscow to respect a ceasefire by withdrawing fully from the conflict.

Asked at a news conference about a US diplomat`s comment that Russian tanks had crossed into Ukraine in recent days, he declined specific comment on that but said: "We ... still see Russian presence and strong support for the separatists in eastern Ukraine. We see the delivery of equipment, forces, training. And so Russia is still in eastern Ukraine.

"Therefore we call on Russia to withdraw all its forces from eastern Ukraine and to respect the Minsk agreement."
