What's the difference between возвратить & вернуть?

 

In my book of verbs both возвратить & вернуть are listed as meaning "to return" in the perfective aspect. There is no indication, as far as I can tell, as to what the difference is between these two verbs. Can anyone enlighten me?

    There is no difference. "Вернуть" is said probably more often.

    Ввозвратить is old and maybe more poetic verb , вернуть is more often used. Both verbs mean the same .

    Absolutely the same thing - the full synonyms.
    вернуть происходит от вертеть, возвращать - от вращать, что практически одно и тоже.

    Смысл один и тодже только возвратить реже используют
