MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s volunteer corps Right Sector has deployed a battalion near the line of disengagement bordering the village of Krasnogorovka of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the spokesman for DPR defense ministry, Eduard Basurin, said on Wednesday.

"In Krasnogorovka (on the outskirts of the city of Donetsk) the Right Sector has stationed its battalion, reinforced by ten tanks," Basurin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.

Also, Basurin has said that Ukrainian military are continuing to pull weapons and hardware back to the conflict zone.

"Ten self-propelled guns, 18 tanks, 30 mechanised infantry combat vehicles and 300 troops have been deployed near the villages of Konstantinovka, Artyomovo and Opytnoye," he said.

Talks of the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine) leaders on the Ukrainian crisis took place in the Belarusian capital Minsk on February 12. Simultaneously, regular talks of the Contact Group were held in Minsk on February 10-12.

Both talks ended by adoption of a 13-point package of measures, which envisages a ceasefire, withdrawal of heavy weapons and pullback of all heavy weapons by both parties to locations equidistant from the disengagement line in order to create a security zone at least 50 kilometres wide for artillery systems with a calibre of 100 mm or more, a zone of security 70 kilometres wide for multiple rocket launchers and a zone 140 kilometres wide for multiple rocket launchers Tornado-S, Uragan and Smerch and the tactical rocket systems Tochka-U.

The final document says that the Ukrainian troops are to be pulled back away from the current line of engagement and the militias of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, from the engagement line set by the Minsk Memorandum of September 19, 2014.
