Russia says it pulls back some of military forces from Ukraine's border


The day of the Russian possible invasion to Ukraine has been delayed since the Russian forces are to be pulled back from the Ukraine border.

On Tuesday, Russia criticized an alleged imminent invasion to Ukraine as “ostentatious hysteria” and announced that it is moving some of its military forces from Ukraine’s border. This is the first huge step back to de-escalation of the week-long tension between Russia and the West.

However, the West is not completely into the pullback and doubt that the invasion has been canceled. The reason for questioning is that a massive Russian force is still arriving near the border.  

Recently it was widely reported about an estimated 130,000 Russian forces at the north, east and south of the former Soviet state.

“We’ve always said the troops will return to their bases after the exercises are over. This is the case this time as well,” Press Secretary of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Peskov said, according to Reuters.

On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry released a video showing some tanks and other military equipment being loaded onto railway cars.

But still it is unclear exactly how many forces will be withdrawn.

Peskov also accused the US of fueling the crisis by warning repeatedly of an invasion, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin “asks to find out if the exact time, to the hour, of the start of the war has been published.

“It’s impossible to be understanding of this manic information madness,” the Kremlin spokesman concluded.

The Biden administration has not seen indications that Russia is drawing down troops on the border.

“The path for diplomacy remains available if Russia chooses to engage constructively,” White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Monday. “However, we are clear-eyed about the prospects of that, given the steps Russia is taking on the ground in plain sight.”
