Russian-supported militants continue to violate the ceasefire in the area of the disengagement of forces and hardware of the conflicting parties near the settlement of Stanytsia Luhanska in Luhansk region, reads a report posted on the Facebook page of the ATO headquarters, with reference to the Ukrainian side of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination.

"The Ukrainian side of the JCCC informs that the militants of the Russian occupation troops continue to violate the ceasefire in the area of the disengagement of forces and means of the parties near the settlement of Stanytsia Luhanska. In order to prevent the disengagement of forces and means scheduled for April 20, militants fired at Ukrainian positions from large-caliber machineguns. Representatives of the OSCE SMM were informed about this," the statement reads.

The report notes that "the disengagement of forces in this area has been impossible for the second year in a row due to the systematic violation of the requirements of the Minsk agreements by invaders."

"The Ukrainian side of the JCCC also notes that Ukrainian Armed Forces units are ready to withdraw forces if the commanders of the Russian occupation administration strictly fulfill the requirements of the framework decision on the disengagement of forces and means on the contact line," the report says.
