LUGANSK, October 11. /TASS/. Disengagement of forces and weapons near the settlement of Stanitsa Luganskaya in Donbass may take place on October 13, Vladislav Deinego, the chief negotiator for the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said on Tuesday after a videoconference with participants in the Contact Group on the Ukrainian settlement.
"Today’s video consultations have given a hope that disengagement of forces near Stanitsa Luganskaya will finally begin on October 13," LuganskInformCenter quoted him as saying.
Deinego stressed that the LPR was ready to begin withdrawal of forces near Stanitsa Lugansksys as far back as October 1, as provided by the framework agreement on disengagement of forces and weapons, but the Ukrainian side "has been systematically dodging its liabilities."
Darya Olifer, press secretary to Ukraine’s chief negotiator, said the talks primarily centered round the issue of troops withdrawal in Donbass. In this context, she stressed that the Ukrainian sited insists on "constant monitoring at the sites of disengagement by monitors of the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM)" of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and once again blamed militias of the self-proclaimed republics for the failure of troops withdrawal near Stanitsa Luganskaya.
