Due to the disengagement of forces in Donbas conflict area, fighters of Ukrainian Armed Forces will return to positions that they held three years ago, in 2016. Ruslan Khomchak, the Chief of General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces said so as quoted by the government web portal.

"New positions of the Ukrainian military will be where they were in 2016, when the disengagement of forces in the said area first took place. The units of Ukraine's Armed Forces will keep controlling the situation", he said.

The disengagement of forces is supposed to be a mirror-like action, Khomchak insisted.
