The pro-Russian militants shelled the area of the disengagement of the forces in Zolote, Luhansk region as the Joint Forces Operation reported on Facebook citing JCCC.
“The illegal armed formations of Russia attacked from the heavy machine guns the area of the disengagement #2 (Zolote 4). The attacks at this area spotted for the second day - the occupants show their unwillingness to observe Minsk Agreements and assumed obligations. Such cynical behavior shows the interest of the enemy in the further escalation,” the message said.
According to Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko, the ceasefire regime should be held at least for seven days for the beginning of the division of forces.
As we reported earlier, on October 1, the sides agreed on the beginning of the disengagement of the forces in Zolote (Luhansk region) and Petrovske (Donetsk region) during the Trilateral Contact Group session.
However, on October 9, the clash took place between the police officers, volunteers, and veterans who want to enter Zolote to prevent the disengagement of forces at the checkpoint in Kreminna, Luhansk region.
The Office of the President confirmed the delay in forces’ separation in the area of Zolote, which was supposed to start a week ago.
