 MOSCOW - Ukraine must pull back its troops in the country's restive east before there can be any talk of a fresh meeting between the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said on Thursday.

"Ukraine has not yet started the practical implementation of the agreements ... on troop pullback in Zolotoye and Petrovskoye," Ushakov told reporters, referring to the locations where both Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian rebels have agreed to withdraw from the line of contact.

The Kiev government said this week the pullback was being delayed by continued shelling from the rebels' side.
