A satellite image provided to Reuters by Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) on April 10, 2014 and taken by DigitalGlobe on April 2, 2014 shows what is reported by SHAPE to be Russian Su-27/30 Flankers and Su-24 Fencers at a military base in Buturlinovka, southern Russia. Russia must pull back its troops from the Ukrainian border as a first step to start dialogue over the crisis there, NATO General Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on April 10, 2014 that some 40,000 Russian troops were massed along Ukraine's borders "not training but ready for combat." Rasmussen added "We have seen the satellite images day after day. Russia is stirring up ethnic tensions in eastern Ukraine and provoking unrest. And Russia is using its military might to dictate that Ukraine should become a federal, neutral state. That is a decision which only Ukraine as a sovereign state can make."
