MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Militias of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic on Tuesday launched the second stage of withdrawing military equipment and weapons with calibre under 100mm from the contact line, the LuhanskInformCenter has said.
The withdrawal of tanks and artillery weapons with the caliber under 100mm and mortars with the caliber under 120mm comes under an agreement signed by LPR’s head Igor Plotnitsky on September 30 in addition to the February 12 Minsk peace deal.
The effort to pull back weapons will last for 41 days and will be carried out in two stages — first tanks, then artillery weapons and later mortars. The process is monitored by the representatives of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC).
