MOSCOW, July 21. /TASS/. The self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Republic (DPR) have withdrawn around 150 units of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line, DPR defense ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin told the Special Monitoring Mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (SMM OSCE) on Tuesday.
"The self-defense forces have already withdrawn around 150 units of military equipment [from the contact line]," Basurin said.
On July 18, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics (DPR and LPR) announced the start of withdrawing tanks and armored vehicles of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line to at least 3 kilometers. DPR weaponry remains only to the north of Donetsk and in Deblatseve — the tensest parts of the contact line. LPR is withdrawing weaponry everywhere along the contact line, excluding the area near the Schastye settlement.
