Number of Russian troops on Ukrainian border decreases

Published: 03.31.14, 19:12 / Israel News

KIEV - The number of Russian troops deployed on the border with Ukraine is decreasing, a Ukrainian defense ministry official said at a news conference on Monday, adding that it was not possible to verify how many had left so far.


But Major-General Oleksandr Rozmaznin told journalists the drop in numbers might reflect a scheduled rotation of conscripts.


"The number of soldiers has fallen, but the exact figure is pretty approximate. I can not confirm the number," said Rozmaznin when asked if as many as 10,000 soldiers might have left the border. (Reuters)
