U.S. Sees No Sign of Russian Troop Pullback From Border

The U.S. said there was as yet no evidence that Russian forces in regions bordering Ukraine have started a withdrawal announced by President Vladimir Putin two days ago.

“We have not seen any withdrawal activity as of 2:45 this afternoon, and we’re watching as best we can constantly,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told reporters at a briefing yesterday. “We’ve seen them say this before, we’re going to withdraw, we’re going to move.”
