LONDON, April 15 (Reuters) - Russia has deliberately pushed Ukraine "to the brink" in recent days and increased the risk of violent confrontation there, British Foreign Secretary William Hague will say on Tuesday in a speech in London.

Hague's comments, released in advance by his office, come after Russia declared Ukraine to be on the verge of civil war and as Kiev said an "anti-terrorist operation" against pro-Moscow separatists was under way.

"In recent days Russia has deliberately pushed Ukraine to the brink, and created a still greater risk of violent confrontation," Hague will say, according to the advance extracts. (Reporting by William James and Andrew Osborn; Editing by Andrew Osborn)
