“Reiterate that we are ready to perform the framework agreement and all the tasks that we set (for removal).

Later, the headquarters of the national police said, near the village of gold the withdrawal of forces is completed. According to the Deputy chief of staff Michael Filimonenko, left positions at the line of demarcation now no soldier of the LC.

Three pilot plot
The decision of the Contact group on Ukraine about breeding forces in the Donbas was signed in Minsk on September 22. Agreed and the proposal of the OSCE in the three areas of the breeding effort and money. The document defines the procedure of breeding units of the opposing parties in the three pilot sites: petrivs’ke (DNI), and the Village Lugansk and gold (LC).
The armed forces are discharged by the parties to create a security plots not less than 2 km wide and 2 km deep. The whole process of withdrawal of forces and means, including preparatory activities, has no more than 30 days for each of the sites. The document also notes that its action extends on additionally agreed areas of breeding, which may be identified during further consultations”.
The fact that Ukraine will break the timing of the withdrawal of forces, has not previously been excluded Eduard Bacurin. “Breeding parties scheduled for October 1. We are fully prepared. Whether provocation from the Ukrainian side? Let’s see,” he said this week.
22 September, the Ukrainian media reported the refusal of the commanders of the APU to comply with the agreement on the breeding effort.
Puppet “the collective West”
Director of the International Institute of the newest States Alexey Martynov indicates that Ukraine from time to time breaking the agreements, it becomes completely predictable in the Minsk process. He did not rule out that in fact such behavior is “collective West led by the United States” to exert more pressure on Russia and to adjust its actions in Syria. It would not surprise me that later in the disruption of breeding forces in the Donbass, the West blamed Russia, not Ukraine.
“Collective West activates all possible methods of pressure on Russia, including the so-called Donbas crisis – civil war in the South-East of Ukraine,” – said Martynov newspaper VIEW, adding that this also applies to history with the publication of interim results on the crash of the “Boeing” over the Donbas.
He stressed that to put pressure on Russia to use all possible instruments, including the escalation in the Donbass. “Human sacrifices do not excite them. They do not care for it. No matter how many people were lost, this again can be attributed to the “evil Russian”. That’s all”, – concluded the expert.
