The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Russia would keep military forces near the country's border with Ukraine for as long as it saw fit and that they posed no external threat.

Ukraine on Tuesday called on NATO to lay out a path for it to join the Western military alliance, drawing an immediate rebuke from Moscow, after days in which Russia has massed troops near the conflict-hit Donbass region.
