LONDON — Britain’s government reacts coolly after Russia says it intends to scale down fighting around two Ukrainian cities following peace talks in Turkey.

“We will judge [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and his regime by his actions and not by his words,” UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman tells reporters.

“We don’t want to see anything less than a complete withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukrainian territory.”
