US Secretary of State John Kerry said Russian troops massed on Ukraine's borders are moving back toward Moscow, but there are still "danger signs".

He urged Russia to take advantage of the recent presidential elections and "build a road forward where Ukraine becomes a bridge between the West and the East."

In a phone call, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had "expressed a hope that there might be a way forward," Kerry said.

The White House, meanwhile, expressed concern that pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine were using advanced weapons "from the outside" after they shot down an army helicopter killing 12 soldiers.
