UN chief: Putin promised no new moves in Ukraine

Posted:
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says Russian President Vladimir Putin assured him that he had no intention of making another military move into Ukraine following the annexation of Crimea.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin echoed the U.N. chief saying Putin made clear in a March 18 statement that there wouldn't be a new Russian move into Ukraine.

Both spoke to reporters after Ban briefed the Security Council Friday on his recent talks with Putin and Ukraine's leaders.

The new Ukrainian government and the West have voiced concerns about a possible invasion as Russia builds up its troops near Ukraine's border.

Churkin said border inspections by about a dozen countries have not raised any alarms. He accused unnamed countries of "trying to artificially whip up the atmosphere of international crisis."
