“We have not seen any Russian withdrawal from the border with Ukraine,” Blinken said in comments carried by news agencies.
“Russian units continue to move towards the border with Ukraine, not the other way around,” he added.
And British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said earlier today that London has not yet seen any evidence that Moscow is withdrawing its forces from positions near the Ukrainian border.
“We don’t see any evidence at this time of this withdrawal,” Wallace insisted.
He stressed that Russia should be judged by its actions when it comes to defusing tension on the border with Ukraine.
Russia had announced the withdrawal of a number of its forces stationed on the border with Ukraine, but the West met this step with great caution.
