Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference in Vienna on June 24 that his earlier decision to renounce a mandate to send troops into Ukraine did not mean Moscow would stop defending ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. Putin said Russia would also protect Ukrainians who feel "inseparably connected" to a "broader Russian world." (Reuters)
