MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the south-east of Ukraine will be withdrawing weapons from the contact line by sectors, spokesman for the DPR defense ministry Eduard Basurin said on Monday.
"The weapons’ withdrawal will most likely take place not simultaneously, because this is unreal, but by sectors where the ceasefire regime is observed," he said.
According to the DPR defense spokesman, "this is the way the militias are ready to launch the weapons’ withdrawal with the participation of the OSCE mission."
According to Basurin, Ukrainian security forces in the area of Debaltseve are not hesitating to open fire on civilians.
"In the Debaltseve area the Ukrainian security forces have been opening fire on everything. They aim at any moving object or living being - militias, journalists, OSCE staff members. When they see a person or a vehicle they begin to shoot indiscriminately at once," the DPR spokesman said. "We ask journalists, representatives of international organisations to be very cautious."
