The withdrawal message from the Russian Defense Ministry comes via the Russian news agency Interfax. “Some units in the southern and western regions have completed their training and have begun to return to the base,” the statement said.

Britain’s Defense Secretary Liz Truss has said Moscow should withdraw all of its forces before it believes a plan to remove Ukraine is off the table.
