Military intervention in Ukraine is discarded by Putin
Russian President Vladimir Putin has stopped his intention to militarily intervene this Tuesday in Ukraine when proposing to the Council of the Federation to annul the provision that allowed him to send troops to Ukraine.
Prior to starting an official visit to Vienna, Putin sent this proposal to Valentina Matvienko, the head of the Enlarged Board according to the Press Secretary of the President, Dmitri Peskov.
The measure is intended to “normalize and regulate the situation in the eastern regions of Ukraine and is related to the beginning of the trilateral talks on that subject,” the official said, according to RIA-Novosti agency.
Thus Putin expects to contribute reducing international tension and strengthen optimism about trilateral “consultations” maintained on Monday by representatives of Ukraine and Russia with the separatist region of Donbas.
