Russia promises not to attack east Ukraine: US

Russia's President Vladimir Putin (L) speaks with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu during their meeting in the Kremlin in Moscow on March 20, 2014Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu promised his US counterpart Chuck Hagel in a telephone call Thursday that Moscow would not assault eastern Ukraine. Hagel voiced concern about Russian military movements but Shoigu assured him that “the troops he has arrayed along the border are there to conduct exercises only and they have no intention of crossing the border into Ukraine and that they would take no aggressive action,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told reporters. Shoigu had pledged that Russia would not send troops into Ukraine’s east and Hagel’s “expectation is that he’ll live up to those words,” he said. Washington has watched a Russian build-up on Ukraine’s eastern border with growing dismay after Moscow’s military intervention in Crimea.
