“We know where the forces have not been withdrawn, and the agreements will be fulfilled.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.
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.
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.
