There is no disengagement possible in Stanytsia Luhanska in the nearest future. Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak announced that on air of one of the Ukrainian TV channels.

Such situation was created in the result of the militants’ shelling. The last shelling reported took place on October 6, i.e. 5 days ago.

Besides, OSCE mission should enhance monitoring the regions, believes Poltorak.

“What is disturbing, the risks that we see in the region of Stanytsya Luhanska, is about the last shelling on October 6, and this doesn’t allow us to perform the disengagement of the military forces and hardware today. Secondly, we believe OSCE needs to strengthen their disengagement monitoring mission – both ours and that of the terrorist groups,” – said the Minister.

As it was reported earlier, the disengagement in Stanytsia Luhanska was scheduled for October 9, but it failed.

Georgiy Tuka, Deputy Minister for Temporarily Occupied Areas and Internally Displaced People, announced that militants started military disengagement, thought they denied that. Later it became known that OSCE observers were not allowed to the area of disengagement in Stanytsia Luhanska.

According to the most up-to-date information, militants did start partial troop withdrawal from Stanytsya Luhanska.
