Russian mercenaries attacked Ukrainian outposts near Stanytsia Luhanska so that there would be no disengagement of troops in this area - as Minsk talks group offers. The press center of the counter-terrorism operation HQ reported that on Wednesday.
On Tuesday evening, the illegal armed units opened fire from small arms in the said sector. The Ukrainian officers from the Joint Control and Coordination Centre told that to OSCE SMM.
'The late attacks prove that the leaders of illegal armed gangs are not interested in calming down the situation and leaving their positions. The Ukrainian army, in turn, is ready to move its forces away from the area of Stanytsia Luhanska - granted that the opposite side also lives up to the decisions of Minsk talks group', the officers said in their statement.
