Ukraine warns against Russia’s ‘fake’ withdrawal

Kyiv, March 30 : Ukrainian general staff of the armed forces on Wednesday said the withdrawal of Russian troops from Kyiv and Chernihiv was a mere “rotation of individual ts” and aimed to “mislead the military leadership” of Ukraine. It said, “According to some indications, the Russian enemy is regrouping ts to focus its main efforts on the east. “At the same time, the so-called ‘withdrawal of troops’ is probably a rotation of individual ts and aims to mislead the military leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and create a misconception about the occupiers’ refusal to plan to encircle the city of Kyiv. On Tuesday, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said that Russia will drastically cut back its military action around Ukraine’s capital Kyiv as the two sides met for peace talks in Turkey, BBC reported. “The decision has been taken to fundamentally cut back military activity in the direction of Kyiv and Chernihiv,” Fomin told reporters as the Russian delegation, including Moscow’s head negotiator Vladimir Medinsky, exited the latest round of peace talks with Ukraine in Istanbul. This decision has been taken in an effort to “increase mutual trust for future negotiations” in order “to agree and sign a peace deal with Ukraine,” he added. RNJ
