BBC Ukraine crisis: Putin ‘orders Russian troop pullback’

Talk & Politics

Maybe this is good news, or maybe it’s just talk and games..
But at some level.. or in some moments of clarity.. Putin has to realize that his dream of an economic “Eurasian” union can only be achieved by being economically attractive to the neighboring states – not through force or occupation..
And this year’s events are just hurting Russia.. both short and medium term…

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered thousands of troops stationed near the Ukrainian border to return to their bases, Russian media report.

Mr Putin’s spokesman said about 17,600 soldiers on training exercises in the Rostov region would be pulled back.

Russia has previously announced troop withdrawals that Nato and the US say were not actually carried out.

Russia has been accused of supplying troops and weapons to separatist rebels in east Ukraine – claims it denies.
