Russia's Defence Ministry confirmed this morning that the troop drawback from the Crimean Peninsula and Ukraine's eastern borders, announced yesterday by Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu following drills in the region, is underway.

  • Russian news agencies carried the ministry's statement that announced "Military units and formations are currently marching to railway loading stations and airfields, and loading onto landing ships, railway platforms and military transport aircraft".
  • Ukraine has welcomed the news, but the country's foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, stated that "If Russia really pulls back from the border with Ukraine the enormous military force it has deployed there, this will already ease tensions. But we need to remember that this step would not put an end neither to the current escalation, nor to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia in general."
