The spokesman said the 28-member alliance would consider reinforcing its Multinational Corps Northeast in the Polish town of Szczecin, in an attempt to reassure countries nervous about Russia's intervention in Ukraine.

Nato defence ministers will meet in Brussels on Tuesday to review measures the alliance had taken given Russia's actions towards Ukraine.
