Ceasefire violations preventing disengagement in Zolote - Ukrainian Defense Minister

KYIV. Oct 8 (Interfax) - Preparations for disengaging forces and military hardware in the Zolote area of the Luhansk region have been successful from a technical standpoint, yet ongoing attacks are preventing the disengagement taking place, Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodnyuk said on Facebook.

"Preparations for the disengagement in this area have been quite successful from the technical point of view, but attacks prevent it from happening. Once again, it is possible to start disengaging forces and hardware only after seven days of continuous ceasefire in the area," Zahorodnyuk said.
