KIEV, February 27. /TASS/. Ukraine’s military is ready to return heavy weaponry to its previous deployment positions near the contact line at any time as the Minsk accords on the Ukrainian settlement are still being violated, President Petro Poroshenko said on Friday.
"Yesterday we began the pullout of heavy weaponry from the contact line with the frames of the Minsk agreements," Poroshenko said. "However, it is only the first step and the initial stage of the Minsk plan implementation."
According to the Ukrainian president, violations of the Minsk agreements are still registered "and the Ukrainian army is ready at any moment to return its military hardware to previous deployment locations and stand up to the enemy in case of the most optimistic scenario in Donbas."
"The military threat coming from the east of Ukraine remains acute and demands constant efforts on strengthening the national defense capabilities," Poroshenko added.
