LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Russian troops deployed near Ukraine are being ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin to return home -- but according to NATO officials, they're not moving.

A statement released Monday morning says the Kremlin ordered troops involved in "planned spring" exercises back to their barracks.

The West has criticized Russia for deploying about 40,000 troops near the border with Ukraine and has demanded they pull back.
