Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday she was concerned by the developments in Crimea, after Kiev accused Moscow of sending thousands of troops to the flashpoint Black Sea peninsula.

"What is happening in Crimea worries us," Merkel said in a speech at a cultural event in Berlin, stressing the importance of "preserving the territorial integrity" of Ukraine.

The German leader spoke to interim prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk by telephone on Saturday, a government spokesman told AFP, while declining to reveal details of the conversation.
