NATO leaders were set Wednesday to invite Finland and Sweden to join after Turkey dropped objections, as the alliance looked to revamp its defences at a summit dominated by Moscow's intervention in Ukraine

Russia said Wednesday it would not be intimidated by US military reinforcements in Europe as tensions spiral over Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine.

“I think that those who propose such solutions are under the illusion that they will be able to intimidate Russia, somehow restrain it — they will not succeed," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters.

“The security of countries where additional contingents will appear will not be strengthened. The prospect of stabilization will be distant. Risks will increase," he added.

He said Russia would respond.
