The conditions stated in the framework deal on disengagement that was recently signed in Minsk let the conflicting sides control their respective territories – including the control with the use of firearms and military vehicles. These conditions also prevent any violations of the fragile ceasefire in Donbas by Russia-backed militants. Yevhen Marchuk, Ukraine’s security subgroup representative in Minsk trilateral contact group posted this at Facebook.
He also added that the document foresees that the sides should withdraw their forces from the contact line simultaneously and under control of the OSCE SMM. The observers are to control this process on the around-the-clock basis.
‘In case of any violations by one of the sides, the OSCE and the joint control committee take certain measures to document these violations, and it all end up in re-deployment of troops at their previous positions.
