Britain wants to send modern weaponry to Moldova to protect it from Russia, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said.
She told The Telegraph newspaper on Saturday that Russian President Vladimir Putin was determined to create a "greater Russia" even though Russia's offensive in Ukraine had failed to achieve quick success.
"I would want to see Moldova equipped to NATO standard. This is a discussion we're having with our allies," she told The Telegraph.
"Putin has been absolutely clear about his ambitions to create a greater Russia," she said.
"And just because his attempts to take Kiev weren't successful doesn't mean he's abandoned those ambitions."
