On November 9, the Ukrainian side is ready to start the practical phase of disengagement of forces and weapons in the third area near Bohdanivka and Petrivske settlements. The press service of the Joint Forces reported that on its Facebook page.
"Ukrainian side is ready to start the practical phase of disengagement of forces and weapons today, which will be demonstrated with the white flare launched today at 12:00 a.m. from our side. Is the enemy ready to implement the taken obligations according to their statements? Or, once again, the enemy will show that the representatives of Russian occupation forces can not be trusted," the message says.
The HQ also added a photo of the OSCE SMM Observation Mision, which was located in Bohdanivka, held by Ukrainian forces, at 11 a.m.
Earlier, the Ukrainian side stated that the disengagement of troops in the area of Petrivske (Donetsk region) should begin on November 9 at 12 a.m. This was the decision of the Minsk trilateral negotiation group, confirmed by Martin Sajdik, the OSCE Special Envoy in this group.
