US President Barack Obama has urged Russia to "move back its troops" on Ukraine's border and lower tensions.

Russia is believed to have massed a force of several thousand troops close to Ukraine's eastern frontier.

Mr Obama told CBS News "Because you are bigger and stronger taking a piece of the country, that is not how international law and international norms are observed in the 21st Century".
