Russian troops still on Ukraine border

The Pentagon says Russia is not withdrawing its troops from the Ukraine border, despite Moscow's claim that the order to pull out has been given. Rear Adm. John Kirby says small numbers of Russian troops have gone back and forth to forward operating bases near the border, but the U.S. has seen no movement of Russian troops back to their home bases. NATO says Russia has 40,000 troops along the border.

President Barack Obama and Russian President Dimitri Medvedev agreed the outlines of a deal to reduce their strategic nuclear warheads to 1,500-1,675 within seven years of a new treaty coming into force.

Both sides are already committed to reducing their arsenals to between 1,700 and 2,200 warheads under the separate Moscow Treaty (SORT) that runs until 2012.
