Putin 'deeply concerned' over US troops in Ukraine

The buildup of the United States and NATO troops in Ukraine is "deeply concerning," Russian President Vladimir Putin (pictured) said on Tuesday.

Delivering remarks at a Defence Ministry Board meeting, he reiterated that Russia stands ready to respond to "the Western states" with "military-technical measures" should the tensions escalate.

"It is their fault, they are to blame," Putin said of Washington in the context of the Ukraine crisis, accusing the US of "supporting separatists."
