NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Tuesday said he could not confirm whether Russian troops had withdrawn from the Ukrainian border as announced by the Kremlin.

"Unfortunately I cannot confirm that Russia is withdrawing its troops; this is not what we have seen," Rasmussen told journalists before a NATO foreign ministers meeting on the crisis in Ukraine.
