Another provocation by Russia-backed militants in Luhansk region put the end to an attempt to disengage troops and forces near Stanytsia Luhanska. The Ukrainian military reported that on Wednesday noon.
'The attack on positions of Ukraine's Armed Forces lasted for about ten minutes. The counter-terrorism operation HQ considers this as the attempt to avoid living up to the decision about the division of troops and force, and shows that the leaders of the Russian occupant administration have no intentions to stabilize the situation on the contact line', reads the Facebook post on the page of counter-terrorism operation HQ.
The incident occurred at about 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The Ukrainian side added that the government troops are ready for disengagement if the militants fully abide by the conditions of Minsk agreements.
