"I can say now that the Ukrainian armed forces and the National Guard completed an operation on the planned and organized withdrawal of some units from Debaltseve this morning," Poroshenko said at an airport before traveling to Donbas.
"Some 80% of the units have already been pulled out. We expect two more columns" to be pulled out, he said.
