“Today we intentionally showed that we were withdrawing military hardware to the boundaries established by the Minsk agreements. Unlike Ukraine, we have always kept our word,” the newly formed Luhansk Information Center, the LPR’s official news agency, quoted Plotnitsky as saying.
“If one of the parties fails to meet its commitments or is doing it partly, the treaty becomes senseless,” the LPR leader went on to say adding it is the fourth agreement between the Kiev authorities and the Luhansk People’s Republic.
He added that despite the previously reached ceasefire agreements, the Ukrainian army has kept shelling the LPR’s towns and cities killing dozens of peaceful civilians.
A Contact Group for settling the Ukraine crisis met in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, on September 5. Representatives of the Kiev authorities, Ukraine’s south-eastern regions, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and Russia adopted a peace settlement plan and a ceasefire agreement.
Two weeks later, on September 20, the Contact Group for Ukraine adopted a 9-point memorandum on the ceasefire implementation. The document contains a ban on using all types of weapons and a demand for each of the parties to withdraw heavy weapons with a caliber exceeding 100mm to 15 kilometers away from the contact line.
