MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. Representatives of the Joint Center for Ceasefire Control and Coordination (JCCC) in Donbass have detailed priority ways of de-escalating tensions in the region, the Donetsk news agency said on Wednesday.
The key point of the plan is to deploy monitoring groups in a symmetrical way along the contact line and to withdraw forces from the contact line to 500 or 1,000 meters and "fully pull out forces from villages if the contact line passes through residential areas," a source told the agency.
To increase control over the situation at the checkpoints, the monitors of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) could perform round-the-clock duties in these areas.
The sides have already carried out two massive weaponry withdrawals to normalize the situation on the contact line in spring and autumn 2015. No agreements have been reached so far on withdrawing forces.
