KIEV, September 24. /TASS/. Withdrawal of heavy weaponry should not be considered the same as withdrawal of troops, Ukraine’s envoy to Contact Group sub-group on security issues Yevgeny Marchuk told the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper on Thursday.
"Talking about heavy weaponry withdrawal, it should be noted that we are not talking about completely withdrawing all troops from the contact line. All troops remains at their positions, and no one withdraws. Sometimes people think that we are talking about some kind of retreat," he said.
The main issues on the agenda for the sub-group on security are "strengthening the process of ceasefire, complete the document on withdrawing heavy weaponry and prepare it for signing by all sides and later proceed to the problem of demining, especially in Shirokino," Marchuk added.
