On September 21, the participants of the Contact Group on settlement in eastern Ukraine signed a framework agreement on disengaging the warring parties in Donbass. The discussion on the document had lasted for three months. The Contact Group agreed on the principles and a timeframe for disengaging forces of Kiev and militias in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
The first stage envisages the creation of security zones in three areas - near Zolotoye, Stanitsa Luganskaya and Petrovsky. The disengagement of forces should be carried out in each of them "not less than 2 km in width and 2 km in depth." The entire process of disengaging forces and hardware, including the preparations for it, should last for no more than 30 days for each area.
