MOSCOW, February 28. (TASS) - Self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) plans to round up the pullout of heavy armaments from the areas adjoining the line of contact on March 2 or March 3, officials at the People’s Police of the republic told LuganskInformCenter.
"We plan to round up the withdrawal of heavy armaments from there by March 2-3," a official said. "Naturally, we’ll do it if no unscheduled circumstances crop up."
According to the data available to LuganskInformCenter, the LPR withdrew 80% of heavy armaments by mid-afternoon on Saturday.
On February 12, a Complex of Measures for Implementation of the Minsk Accords was signed by members of the Contact Group for peace settlement in southeastern Ukraine. It consists of thirteen provisions including ceasefire in certain districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions beginning with February 15, the pullout of heavy armaments from the zones adjoining the line of contact that separates the East-Ukrainian self-defence units and the pro-Kiev troops and other measures that will, hopefully, be conducive to long-term political settlement in Donbass.
Ceasefire regime took effect at 01:00 hours Moscow Standard Time on February 15 (22:00 hours GMT on February 14).
