` Ukraine Defence Ministry confirms the Gradual withdrawal of Russian Troops’

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 31 – Ukraine’s defence ministry has said there has been a gradual withdrawal of Russian troops from its border that may be linked to Washington’s latest push for a diplomatic solution to the worst East-West crisis since the Cold War.

Oleksiy Dmytrashkivskiy, Ukraine’s defence ministry spokesman, said on Monday that he could not confirm how many soldiers the draw-down involved or the number of troops still stationed at Russia’s border with its former Soviet satellite.

“In recent days, the Russian forces have been gradually withdrawing from the border,” Dmytrashkivskiy told the AFP news agency.
