BRUSSELS, April 1 (Xinhua) -- NATO Tuesday announced new measures to intensify cooperation with Ukraine and suspend all practical civilian and military cooperation with Russia.

According to a statement released by the foreign ministers from NATO, the bloc plans to seek closer cooperation with Ukraine and to promote the country's defence reforms through capacity building and capability development programs.

The statement also said that the bloc will reinforce the NATO Liaison Office in Kiev with additional experts.

Meanwhile, NATO decided to suspend all practical civilian and military cooperation with Russia, according to the statement.

"Our political dialogue in the NATO-Russia Council can continue, as necessary, at the Ambassadorial level and above, to allow us to exchange views, first and foremost on this crisis," the statement said.

"We will review NATO's relations with Russia at our next meeting in June," added the statement.
