UK service personnel 'to help train Ukraine forces'

Michael Fallon has confirmed UK service personnel will be sent to Ukraine to help with medical, logistics, infantry and intelligence training for government forces from mid-March.

The defence minister added: "Meantime, Russia must abide by its commitments at Minsk.

"That means making the separatists withdraw their heavy weapons, stopping continued separatist attacks... and allowing effective monitoring to take place".
