DONETSK, October 4. /TASS/. Self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) upholds the agreements on ceasefire adopted in the Belarusian capital Minsk, the press department of the DPR Defence Ministry told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“DPR keeps up to the ceasefire and other agreements,” the defence ministry said. “However, Ukrainian military have violated the ceasefire for so many times that we failed to register all the cases.”
On September 20 the Contact Group on Ukraine adopted a memorandum on implementing a ceasefire. OSCE envoy Heidi Tagliavini, Ukraine’s former president Leonid Kuchma, Russia’s Ambassador to Kiev Mikhail Zurabov, DPR Prime Minister Aleksandr Zakharchenko and the head of Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), Igor Plotnitsky, signed the nine-item document that included a ban on all weapons, pulling back heavy weapons from the line of engagement and setting up a buffer zone of 15 kilometres. The memorandum also entrusts the OSCE with a task of controlling implementation of the agreements.
DPR first deputy Prime Minister Andrey Purgin and LPR parliament Speaker Aleksei Karyakin were among the negotiators.
The previous meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine was held in Minsk on September 5 when the sides adopted a 12-item protocol on peace settlement in Ukraine, with agreements on a ceasefire and exchange of prisoners.
On September 3 Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested his seven-item plan to settle the crisis in Ukraine.
