“Ukraine has expressed the wish to hold more talks. We supported this intention, because the question of ending insane bloodshed is of fundamental importance to us. We have agreed that starting December 5 we are introducing full ceasefire and pulling out heavy armaments as of December 6,” Plotnitsky said.
“We'll keep our word. Let's see if Ukraine acts likewise,” Plotnitsky said, adding that the disengagement line remained unchanged.
The Joint Center on Control and Coordination agreed on a draft timetable for the pullout of troops from the conflict area in the east of Ukraine. The three-phase plan provides for a two-day ceasefire, the removal of heavy armaments within a five-day deadline and the disengagement of the conflicting forces along the line drawn up under the Minsk memorandum within 21 days.
