Pentagon says too soon to talk about withdrawal of Russian troops

26.04.2021 09:30

The United States believes that at this stage it is too soon to assess any statements by Russia on the completion of exercises and the withdrawal of their troops from Ukraine’s borders, according to Pentagon press secretary John Kirby.

He said this at a briefing at the U.S. Department of Defense on Friday, April 23, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“We’ve seen the Russian comments about how they’re ending the exercises, and they’re going to redeploy. It’s too soon to tell with any specificity right now, Friday afternoon, how much we can take that at face value,” Kirby said.

He also said the United States was watching this process “very, very closely.” He reiterated that the United States continued to “call on Russia to cease their provocations, to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and to not contribute to activities that only make the instability along the border with Ukraine and in occupied Crimea less stable.”

Last week, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered the withdrawal of Russian troops, massed in recent weeks along the Ukrainian border, to their permanent bases from April 23.

  • Probably right. That is why the Budapest signatories need to begin the process of fortifying Ukraine so that it is impervious to attack by the putinazis. This needs to be done asap.
    Note : at the bottom of UT articles are links to other WP articles on this topic. These links are becoming infested with really vile putinazi propaganda pieces. See the filthy piece of septic sewer slurry entitled :
    ‘Flashpoint Ukraine vs Russia – Fuck Around And Find Out – Suicide Attack To Make Russia Look Bad’.
    This shit is going to confuse visitors to this site.

      • Already corrected! Unfortunately I make lots of clumsy typos when in a hurry and quite often even when not hurrying.
        One of your favourite errors is your frequent deployment of the term ‘no more’, instead of ‘anymore’. However, if you still want to use ‘no more’, you could make it more Dixie by just sayin’ no mo’. Ha!
        However, if you want to pepper your stuff with a bit of Cajun, how about my favorite one : Ça, Ça Me Fait du Mal! (Usually put at the end of a song verse by Cajun singers for emphasis).

    “The United States believes that at this stage it is too soon to assess any statements by Russia on the completion of exercises and the withdrawal of their troops from Ukraine’s borders…”
    Ruskies lie whenever a sound exits their foul-smelling traps.
