US relations with Russia have entered a period of "uncertainty" as Moscow appears determined to sow discord within Europe and undermine US influence, NATO's top commander warned.

"The relationship with Russia is likely to be more difficult to manage in coming years than any time since the end of the Cold War," General John Craddock told a congressional hearing in written testimony.

Citing Russia's military action supporting breakaway regions in Georgia in August 2008 and disputes over gas supplies to Europe in January this year, Craddock wrote Moscow's actions "suggest that their overall intent may be to weaken European solidarity and systematically reduce US influence."
