Pentagon views Russian claim of withdrawal from Kyiv with skepticism

Russia has started moving very small numbers of troops away from positions around Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, the Pentagon said on Tuesday (March 29), adding it was more of a repositioning than a retreat or a withdrawal from the war, Reuters reported.
“Has there been some movement by some Russian units away from Kyiv in the last day or so? Yes, we think so. Small numbers,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told a news briefing.
Kirby also told reporters that U.S. troops in Poland were “liaising” with Ukrainian forces as they hand over weapons to them, but it was not training “in the classic sense.”
Kirby did not provide details on what exactly the interactions entail, read the report.
Kirby added that additional aircraft, including 10 F-18 jets, and more than 200 personnel would be headed to eastern Europe, including Lithuania.The post Pentagon views Russian claim of withdrawal from Kyiv with skepticism first appeared on Ariana News.
