UK foreign secretary Liz Truss said cooperation with Moscow is over but has not yet acted in line with EU nations

Truss told a Nato foreign ministers’ dinner that the Nato-Russian Founding Act, the basis of cooperation between Moscow and Nato, was at an end. She said: “The age of engagement is over. We need a new approach to security in Europe based on resilience, defence and deterrence.
