The remarks come as Nato holds an emergency meeting to discuss the crisis in eastern Ukraine.
The West has stepped up its accusations of direct Russian involvement in the conflict, following advances by pro-Russian rebels.
On Thursday Nato released satellite images it said showed Russian forces inside Ukraine. and said more than 1,000 troops were operating there.

Ukraine is determined to get themselves fully invaded aren’t they.....Putin will march in there before it could happen.
The Pautards will arrive, presently, to inform us that all this is NATO’s fault.
No thanks. NATO does not need countries run by people that burn tires in their town square and act like Occutards.
Putin is just slowly bleeding anyone dumb enough to get bogged down with that mess.
This is directly asking for war. No way. You can’t enter NATO while you’re already being invaded. It doesn’t work like that. Can Iraq join NATO?
Instead they should follow your advice and appease Putin.
Putin is turning out to a master manipulator...years of KGB training vs a guy who can’t throw a baseball 5 yards. Who do you think was gonna win that match up.
Where did i advise appeasement? Its a different story poking the bear though when a massive army is sitting on your border and no one practically wanting to help you. So get real.
Obama is not part of this fight and not likely to get into it
No one poked the bear. No one attacked Russia.
This is pure Tsarish Imperialism
If Ukraine wants to join NATO (if they are invited) and they don't because they are afraid of Putin, that would be appeasement.
That's what you are advising them.
How DARE these filthy Ukrainian plebs strive for freedom, no worries, mother Russia and its cut throats to the rescue.
There was a report about 2 injured Ukrainian officers exploding themselves with grenades, killing some Russian troopers in the process, in order to avoid being captured.
I do not think Ukrainians are the meek sort who let their lives be ruled by tyrants.
If one calls appeasement what it is then they are called a war supporter.
Exactly, and what i said was, no one is going to help them because the fact is, none of them want to take on Putin,they are all scared of him simple plain fact. Like it or lump it. Obama handed the role of leader of the world to Russia by being the biggest ditherer and wimp the US Presidency has produced.
No appeasement about it, Ukraine can fight all they like, The EU is not going to lift a damn finger to help them, totally dependent on russian energy. Its a new world out there, better get used to it.
I don’t think the US should send troops. I think the US should send them arms though.
So Putin dictates which NATO countries are allowed?
Not directly but he will make damn sure it does not happen in Ukraine’s case.
Some people needs lessons in world views of how the Russians operate.
You saw what happened when Ukraine tried to do the whole EU thing............did they send armies or get involved...bot really, NATO will steer clear of this mess on its own.
