Over 100 British troops will travel to Estonia for a Nato exercise aimed at reassuring the Baltic states that they will be protected against any aggression from Russia.
The troops will reportedly come from 1st Battalion The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment and are set to leave the UK today.
They will be joined by Defence Secretary Philip Hammond, who will go on to visit RAF crews stationed in nearby Lithuania.
European Union foreign ministers added 13 people to their visa ban and asset freeze list over Ukraine's crisis.
Well that’s the voting over, and no surprises so far. A ‘Yes’ vote claimed to be 89% in Donetsk, and suddenly Ukraine is no more.
Nearly 90 percent of voters in eastern Ukrainian region voted for self-rule, the head of the separatist election commission said.
