Britain has suspended bilateral military co-operation with Russia that is not subject to treaty obligations, Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.
Hague said this included cancelling a planned French-Russian-UK-United States naval exercise and suspending a proposed Royal Navy ship visit to St Petersburg.

He added: "I pay tribute to extraordinary restraint shown by the Ukrainian government, its military forces and its people in the face of immense provocation."
Britain has rejected Crimea's referendum vote to breakaway from the Ukraine and join Russia, denouncing it as a "mockery of proper democratic practice".
Arriving in Brussels for talks tomorrow with EU foreign ministers, Foreign Secretary William Hague said Russia must now face "economic and political consequences" for its violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Nothing in the way that the referendum has been conducted should convince anyone that it is a legitimate exercise.

Any attempt by the Russian Federation to use the referendum as an excuse to annex the Crimea, or to take further action on Ukrainian territory, would be unacceptable.
The UK government is to continue provide humanitarian aid to Syria, William Hague has said, on the third anniversary of the conflict. The Foreign Secretary joined Prime Minister David Cameron in saying the government would try to prevent further suffering in the country.

After the traditional handshake welcome, the Prime Minister described having a "lovely time" in Israel's boisterous parliament, the Knesset, a few days ago.

The group ended the staged sit-down by reiterating their commitment to taking action against Russia if a diplomatic solution to the Ukraine crisis cannot be found.
Foreign Secretary William Hague has said Russia's unwillingness to de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine has made it a "formidably difficult task" for a diplomatic solution to be reached.
Mr Hague said the US-Russia talks being held by John Kerry and Sergei Lavrov in London would work towards a "breakthrough", adding "every effort will be made to find a diplomatic way forward" over the next few hours in the capital.
But he added that it was "realistic" to prepare action should Sunday's internationally unsolicited referendum in Crimea go ahead with a meeting of EU foreign ministers set for Monday.
William Hague has pleaded for Sunday's referendum on Crimea's future to be called off and warned Russia that European travel bans and asset freezes will be imposed unless progress is made on tackling the Ukraine crisis.
Ahead of talks in London between US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, Mr Hague said the referendum would not be "legal or legitimate".
The Foreign Secretary said: "Part of the answer to finding ways of de-escalating is for this referendum to be called off and for international negotiations to take place.
"If there is no progress on these things in the next few days then we will move to the next stage of Europe's response to this crisis which will involve travel bans and asset freezes on individuals in Russia."
Foreign Secretary William Hague has called for Crimea's independence referendum to be abandoned and warned that European sanctions against Russia will be stepped up if there is no progress on the Ukraine crisis in the "next few days".
The UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said that UK and United States are working closely together to find solution to the crisis in Crimea.
