Despite announcing to “partially withdraw soldiers” from Ukraine’s borders, NATO chief, Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday said Russia seemed to be building up its forces around Ukraine, despite Moscow announcing the pullback of more forces from the border.

The news: The Russian Defense Ministry released a video of troops retreating from Crimea on Wednesday.

  • The development came in process a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Russia has chosen to “partially withdraw soldiers” from Ukraine’s borders, and the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that some forces from military districts would return.
  • An estimated 130,000 Russian troops are in position on Ukraine’s northern, eastern and southern sides.
  • Russia says a video shows tanks, military equipment leaving Crimea across a railway bridge after drills, adding that some troops would also return to their permanent bases.
  • “Combat equipment and military personnel will be delivered by military trains to the units’ permanent deployment points,” the defence ministry said.
  • “Upon arrival, the equipment will be serviced and prepared for carrying out the next phase of combat training,” the ministry added.
  • On Tuesday, Moscow announced a partial withdrawal of military from the Ukraine border. However, the action was closely watched as officials had doubt on the announcement, with US President Joe Biden claiming that more than 150,000 Russian troops were stationed near Ukraine’s borders.
