LUHANSK, February 27. /TASS/. Around 70% of heavy weaponry has been withdrawn from the disengagement line as of February 26 in line with the Minsk agreements, deputy head of people’s militia of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Yatsenko said on Friday.
"Thirteen units of military equipment were withdrawn from Luhansk to the Georgievka settlement. Seven units of barrel weapons and six units of rocket artillery were withdrawn from Deblatsevo to permanent location in Luhansk, Yatsenko said.
"OSCE [Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe] observers and the media witnessed the withdrawal," he noted.
Earlier, LPR head Igor Plotnitsky said the self-defense forces are already withdrawing around 80% of heavy weaponry from the disengagement line. The Ukrainian forces have completed the withdrawal plan only by 15-20%, Plotnitsky added.
From February 21, no military actions have been registered on the territory of the LPR, Yatsenko said.
