The withdrawal of arms is carried out by militants not to the fullest extent, they rather ostensibly mirror the adherence to Minsk agreements, the coordinator of Information Resistance Dmytro Tymchuk  stated on his Facebook page, Unian.

"At each site in the areas of Shchastia, Stanytsia Luhanska, Vesela Hora, Slovianoserbsk and Zholobok settlements the removal of equipment groups up to 3-5 tanks is observed , while 10-15 tanks remain in these same areas, the equipment is masked (mostly in wood lines), “ said in his statement.

As it was reported before, October 5 a 41-day operation of weapons removal has been launched. Tanks T-64 and T-72, antitank gun D-48 and D-44, 85 mm mortars and 2B-82 of 9-millimeter caliber are to be pulled back from the contact line of the eastern Ukraine. The arms withdrawal will be launched in turn: first the sector "A", and then the other sectors (from east to west). 14 days are given for the removal of certain armament and armored vehicles from sector "A".

The agreement on withdrawal of armament less than 100 mm caliber from the contact line in Donbas came into force October 3, the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced after the meeting in the "Norman format" in Paris on Friday, October 2.

Earlier, on September 29, Trilateral contact group in Minsk signed an agreement on withdrawal of small-caliber weapons from the contact line with Russia-backed militants in Donbas.
