Nato: 'No indication' of Russian troop withdrawal

A Nato official has said there is so far "no indication" that Russian forces have withdrawn from near the Ukrainian border.

Vladimir Putin earlier said the Kremlin had pulled back its forces and they were "not on the Ukrainian border".

But a Nato military official told the Reuters agency they had not seen evidence of any withdrawal.

"We have no indication of a change in the position of military forces along the Ukraine border," the official said.
