LUHANSK, September 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The leader of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) pledged on Tuesday to remain committed to the ceasefire agreement with Kiev, including the troops withdrawal.

“We know where the forces have not been withdrawn, and the agreements will be fulfilled. On our side - that’s for sure,” the head of the republic, Igor Plotnitsky, told reporters.

“If we gave our word and signed [the truce], we will remain committed to it,” Plotnitsky said, adding that militias met the commitments under the June ceasefire with Kiev and did not use weapons, while Ukrainian troops attempted to seize the territories.

Minsk Memorandum

At the last week’s meeting in Debaltseve, in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, the representatives of LPR and the neighboring self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) discussed together with the members of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine the implementation of the Minsk Memorandum.

Under the terms of Minsk Memorandum, adopted by the Contact Group on Ukraine on September 20, both militias and Ukrainian forces are to withdraw their heavy artillery 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the frontline, creating a 30 kilometer buffer zone.

The memorandum follows a general agreement reached during the OSCE-mediated talks in the Belarusian capital Minsk on September 5 which implemented the ceasefire on the same day.
