MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. The intelligence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has discovered 26 items of Ukrainian military hardware masked near the disengagement line in Donbas, DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin said at a news conference in the Donetsk News Agency on Friday.
Ukrainian troops have been engaged in fierce fighting with local militias during Kiev’s punitive operation, underway since mid-April 2014, against the breakaway territories — the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics constituting parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.
Massive shelling of residential neighborhoods, including with the use of aviation, has killed thousands and led to a humanitarian disaster in the area.
Kiev has regularly violated the ceasefire regime imposed as part of the Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk Agreements.
Following the September 29 meeting in Minsk of the participants of the Contact Group on settlement in Donbas and its working security subgroup, the participants of the talks initialed a document on pullback of armaments with calibers less than 100 millimeters and tanks from the disengagement line 15 kilometers to each side. The withdrawal period is to total 41 days. The next day, the leaders of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) and DPR signed the document.
