NATO and Russia are ending their talks in Brussels, where relations are said to have been at a very low level.

A high-stakes meeting between Russia and NATO over Ukraine ended without a breakthrough.

Politicians and military on both sides said significant differences remained after what they described as frank and open discussions.

More talks are underway, but the failure to reach an understanding means that the risk of armed conflict in Europe is higher.

Both NATO and the United States have rejected the Kremlin’s demands for security – among them ensuring that the military alliance of Ukraine and other former Soviet states are not accepted as members.

So does diplomacy still have a chance?
