NATO positively assesses the disengagement of forces near Zolote in the Luhansk region. In addition, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reminded Russia about its responsibility for implementing Minsk agreements. Interfax-Ukraine agency reported this.
Stoltenberg added he wanted the disengagement in Stanytsia Luhanska to serve as an example.
“We welcome all the efforts for disengagement aimed at the peaceful settlement of the conflict. We have seen some progress in Stanytsia Luhansks and wanted this example to be hereditary,” Jens Stoltenberg said.
He also said that there was still much to be done to resolve the situation in Donbas peacefully since militants are still violating the “silence regime.”
“We at NATO stress that Russia has a clear responsibility for the implementation of Minsk agreements. In particular, it must withdraw all troops from eastern Ukraine and stop destabilizing Ukraine,” Jens Stoltenberg said.
As we reported earlier, the process of the disengagement of forces and equipment in Zolote village in the Luhansk region began, the next disengagement will be in Petrivske. Vadym Pristayko, Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs, said that to journalists in Mariupol.
