"Several thousand" Russian troops, supported by "hundreds" of tanks and armoured vehicles are fighting inside Ukraine, with 20,000 more parked across the border a Nato official has said. "Their objective appears to be to freeze the conflict, to create a situation like Georgia, where the separatists are deeply entrenched".
