About 80,000 Russian troops remain near Ukrainian border - Mass media
Russia has withdrawn only a few thousand troops from the border with Ukraine.
The New York Times reports, citing senior officials of the administration of US President Joe Biden.
Some Russian units were ordered to return to their barracks by May 1, and they withdrew from the border, sources said.
At the same time, many units left their equipment near the border. The administration sees this as a signal that they may return if Russian President Vladimir Putin decides to deploy them again.
According to senior US Defense Department officials, about 80,000 Russian troops remain near various parts of the border with Ukraine, the largest number of troops at the border since the annexation of Crimea in 2014.
