LONDON - Russia has made constructive moves in recent days towards possibly reducing tensions in Ukraine, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.



Speaking in London, Kerry said the United States and Europe would lift sanctions within days or weeks depending on whether President Vladimir Putin takes more steps to de-escalate tensions and live up to commitments under September ceasefire accords to end the Ukraine conflict.



"Let me say that Russia has made constructive moves in the last days," Kerry told reporters.



"There are some indications that whether it is the line of control negotiation or the calm that is, in fact, in place in a number of places, the withdrawal of certain people, there are signs of constructive choices. And that can only be helpful, hopefully," he added.
