NATO's secretary-general said Wednesday that Russia's intervention in Ukraine posed the most serious threat to Europe's security since the end of the Cold War and warned Moscow it would face international isolation.The situation was more serious because of the scale of Russia's action, representing one of the largest troop movements in Europe for "many decades," and because it was occurring "right on NATO's border," he said.Rasmussen, who was holding talks in Washington on the crisis, denounced Russia's actions as "military aggression" that violated Ukraine's sovereignty. Rasmussen issued no military threat and acknowledged the West had no "easy" options at hand.
