Putin asks lawmakers to cancel authorisation to send army into Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday asked the upper chamber of parliament to cancel a resolution allowing him to send troops into Ukraine, a Kremlin spokesman said.

“In the aim of normalising the atmosphere and resolving the situation in the eastern regions of Ukraine and also in connection with the start of three-way negotiations on this issue a request was sent to the Federation Council to cancel the resolution,” Russian news agencies quoted spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.
