President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky declares that agreement on the withdrawal of troops in Donbas has been reached. The withdrawal will take place along the entire demarcation line, 112 Ukraine reports.

“We took the first step, and it was very difficult. We know what to do next. Next, we will strive to return all our prisoners and continue to separate the troops in two stages in the framework of the Minsk process. First, near Zolote and Petrovske settlements, and then - separation on the entire territory, a ceasefire and an end to the war," Zelensky said.

The final stage, according to the president, is to return the occupied territories under Ukraine’s control.
