VIENNA, November 19. /TASS/. Representatives of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of issues related to the ceasefire regime have completed delimitation in eastern Ukraine, Russian Permanent Representative at the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Andrey Kelin told TASS on Wednesday. However, talks on this disengagement line between conflicting parties are only in view in concrete localities, he said.

“Delimitation is under way. Military have drawn a disengagement line from which distances for military hardware withdrawal will be set,” he said. “This work should be finalised,” Kelin said, adding that “Conflicting parties in concrete localities should be talked into this line being determined correctly.”

The Contact Group on Ukraine has adopted a ceasefire memorandum in Belarusian capital Minsk on September 20. The document has nine clauses, particularly a ban on the use of all types of weapons and a pullback of artillery gun systems from the contact line.

The Joint Center for Control and Coordination was formed of Ukrainian and Russian military. Representatives of Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics are also participating in the center’s activity. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine is not participating in the center’s activity, mission’s representatives said.
