Veterans of Donbas conflict will remain on the division line in Zolote settlement in Luhansk region, demanding that the Ukrainian government officially refuses to implement the Steinmeier formula and drops the idea to disengage troops along the said line. Andriy Biletsky, the leader of National Corps party and the first commander of Azov volunteer regiment said so as quoted by Interfax news agency.
"As soon as we get the official statement about dropping the policy of forces' disengagement, the statement about cancelation of Steinmeier formula (...), we will consider our security mission completed. As for the social mission, we'll carry on with it as long as possible", Biletsky said.
He specified that in case of the army units' withdrawal, the veterans would remain in Zolote until the troops get back to this settlement.
