Topic: Putin orders Russian troops back to bases after drills near Ukraine


Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered military forces to return to their permanent bases after drills in three regions bordering Ukraine, the Kremlin said on Monday. Putin's office said he had issued the order because the spring maneuvers were over. The move could also be intended to ease tension in Russia's standoff with the West over Ukraine before Kiev holds a presidential election on Sunday. In Brussels, however, a NATO military officer said the military alliance had seen no sign of the Russian troops returning to their bases.
