Russia announces troop pullback from Ukraine’s Kharkiv area

Russia on Saturday announced that it is pulling back its troops from Ukraine’s key area of Kharkiv. Ukraine’s counter-offensive has made significant advances in the past week in the area, which could be the reason of the pull back, sources said. Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said the troops would be regrouped from the Balakliya and Izyum areas to the Donetsk region. Izyum was a major base for Russian forces in the Kharkiv region.
