Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andrii Zagorodniuk, stated that the last shelling in Petrivske, where the next disengagement of forces and equipment should take place, was on October 30 and therefore the date of the disengagement is going to be reviewed. Zagorodniuk said this at a press conference.
"There was a shelling (in Petrivske, - ed.) And therefore we are expecting the review. Because there must be seven days of silence after the shelling," Zagorodniuk said.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that disengagement of forces and equipment in the area of Petrivske should start on November 4. The president said this during the press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
"For our part, we started a disengagement in Katerynivka. If everything is safe in Petrivske through a week - there should be seven days of silence - it seems to me that on November, 4 we should start disengagement in Petrivske as well," Zelensky said.
As we reported earlier, on October 1, the sides agreed on the beginning of the disengagement of the forces in Zolote (Luhansk region) and Petrivske (Donetsk region) during the Trilateral Contact Group session.
