Ukrainian demolition experts finished the mine clearing works in the area of Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint. OSCE confirmed this information after the session of the Minsk talks group.

The next step in the peace plan would be the simultaneous dismantling of military fortifications on the both sides of the conflict. Then, the bridge over Siversky Donets is to be repaired.

Previously, It was destroyed in the military action. The sides actually agreed on it in early July, but the Russian mercenaries repeatedly breached the ceasefire and thus prevented the repair works.
