(CNN) - NATO's Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, says that 40,000 Russian troops are still massed along Ukraine's borders.

He stated that the troops are, quote, "not training, but ready for combat," citing these satellite images.

The statement follows an amnesty announced by Ukrainian officials.

The interim president has promised not to prosecute Pro-Russian demonstrators who are occupying government buildings if they call off their protest.
