Moving troops back, but moving air forces forward, into southern bases, and into Crimea.

Obama can declare “VICTORY!” in the U.S. press, and “move on”, while the Status Quo remains essentially the same.

“Kerry’s IMF check for partial payment of Ukraine’s gas arrears to Gazprom must have cleared...”

Gazprom said today that Ukraine failed to pay for April natgas deliveries.

And the Chechens and Don Cossacks? Are they being withdrawn also?

A lot of indications of more Russian planned violence in Ukraine on Victory Day. Putin is just distancing himself from that.

The Russian national unlawful combatants and arms continue flowing freely in to Ukraine. When that stops we will know what Putin says is true.
