Ukrainian armed forces and representatives of the self-described Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) have agreed on a ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons, according to a new report from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
“All agreed in principle to a total ceasefire along the entire line of contact between Ukrainian Armed Forces and those under control of the “LPR”, to be effective from 5 December… They also agreed that the withdrawal of heavy weapons would start on 6 December,” the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) report said.
The report follows another announcement last month by SMM stating that Russia and the Ukrainian heads of the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) had agreed on a draft schedule for gradual disengagement of forces along the line of contact in Donbas, in southeastern Ukraine.
The JCCC was set up by Ukraine, Russia and Didier Burkhalter, the top OSCE official in eastern Ukraine, in October to coordinate the execution of the ceasefire agreement in the country.
