Topic: Ukraine president says troops have withdrawn from Debaltseve

Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko said on Wednesday that government forces had withdrawn from the flashpoint town of Debaltseve, where pro-Russian rebels have been battling troops for weeks. "This morning the Ukrainian armed forces together with the National Guard completed an operation for a planned and organised withdrawal from Debaltseve. The Ukrainian leader said he had given the order to pull out Tuesday and was now heading to the front line to "meet those who have left Debaltseve". "These actions have confounded Russia, which only yesterday demanded that Ukrainian soldiers lay down their arms, raise the white flag and surrender," Poroshenko said.
