London. Theresa May has warned European leaders to remain "open-eyed" to the threat of "hostile" Russia as she accused Moscow of attempting to destabilise the continent, Sky News reported.
Arriving in Brussels for an EU summit focused on the bloc's partnership with eastern European countries, the Prime Minister offered a stark assessment of Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions.
Speaking ahead of the Eastern Partnership summit, Mrs May said: "The summit here today is all about taking stock and about looking ahead to see how we can tackle the shared challenges together, both in security and development.
"We must be open-eyed about the actions of hostile states like Russia who threaten the potential growth of the Eastern Neighbourhood and who try to tear our collective strength apart.
"I'm looking forward today to renewed commitments from European countries to working together to tackle these shared challenges in both security and development."

Brussels. British Prime Minister Theresa May repeated her wish on Friday to make a joint move with the European Union to open negotiations on a post-Brexit trade deal, Reuters reported.
Speaking to reporters on arrival at a Brussels summit with ex-Soviet states, she said she would talk to EU summit chair Donald Tusk later in the day about “positive negotiations we’re having, looking ahead to the future deep and special partnership that I want with the European Union”.
“What I‘m clear about is that we must step forward together,” she added. “This is for both the UK and for the European Union to move on to the next stage.”
The EU wants May to improve her financial and other offers before opening trade talks. May has said she wants guarantees of trade talks before making a new offer.
May will discuss Brexit plans with European Council President Tusk at 4:30 p.m. (1530 GMT) on Friday, the EU summit chair’s office said, confirming the time of talks.
EU officials are waiting for signs from May that she is ready to strike a deal on finances and other issues to conclude a first phase of talks next month on Britain’s withdrawal in order to secure EU agreement to negotiate a future trade pact.
