Ukraine’s Warring Sides Begin Pullback of Weapons

Ukrainian army and pro-Russian rebels have begun pulling back weapons from a buffer zone in eastern Ukraine following a fresh agreement in Paris. Vladyslav Seleznyov, an official representative of Ukrainian forces, said on Saturday that the army started listing the weapons of less than 100mm caliber and coordinating the process with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Reuters reported.
“Now the process of making the list and coordinating with OSCE is going on for withdrawal of weapons of less than 100mm,” Seleznyov told Itar-Tass. Meanwhile, the Luhansk People’s Republic group, pro-Russian separatists in rebel-held east Ukrainian region of Luhansk, said that they had begun withdrawing their tanks from the buffer zone.
“We are starting to withdraw weapons. Tanks are going to be withdrawn first,” the group said on Saturday in their headquarters, according to Interfax news agency.
“The first convoy of tanks have already started to back up from the area of Aleksandrovsk village and they will be taken 15km away from the line of engagement.”
