According to the people’s deputy from the «Servant of the People» Irina Vereshchuk, it seemed strange to her that the foreign minister Vadim Pristayko was the first to report the start of the separation of forces and assets in the Golden Lugansk region.
«Inconsistency» in the process of informing about the separation of forces and assets in the Donbass will be corrected, Irina Vereshchuk, a People’s Deputy from the «Servant of the People», told reporters on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada on October 30, reports UNN.
The people’s deputy noted that information about the start of breeding in the Golden Lugansk region was not immediately confirmed.
“It seemed strange to me why Mr. [Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim] Priestayko spoke about the beginning of the breeding. We have a chief of the General Staff, a minister of defense. I think this is an inconsistency that will be fixed in the future,” Vereshchuk said.
On October 1, 2019, the OSCE Special Representative in the tripartite contact group, Martin Saydik, reported that following the results of the next round of negotiations, the parties agreed to resume the separation of forces and assets in the Golden and Petrovsky Donetsk Regions from October 7. But on October 7, breeding did not begin due to recent shelling of these settlements, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
The main condition for the start of the withdrawal of troops is the observance of the ceasefire in these areas for seven days. On October 29, the headquarters stated that the invaders did not open fire at Zolotoy during the past week.
The Ukrainian side at the Joint Center for Monitoring and Coordinating the Ceasefire and Stabilizing the demarcation line of the parties reported that the fighters on October 28 opened fire five times near the Zolotoy-4 division of forces and equipment.
On October 29, at the investment forum in Mariupol, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim Pristayko announced that the separation of forces and assets near the demarcation line began in Zolotoy. According to Priestayko, according to the assurance of the OSCE mission, the last shelling was there 10 days ago.
The OOS press center said that as of 11.30 October 29, Ukrainian troops in Zolotoy did not move towards the breeding line. Later at the headquarters of the environmental protection department it was reported that breeding in the plot No. 2 in the area of the settlement of Zolotoye-4 of the Luhansk region began at 12.00. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the separation of forces in the Zolotoy district is calm.
On October 29, the OOS headquarters also stated that the OSCE mission did not confirm the shelling of the breeding site in Zolotoy on October 26, in addition, they reported that five cases of violation of the silence regime, which the headquarters reported on October 28, were recorded in Zolotoy outside the breeding site.
On October 30, the Ukrainian side in the Joint Center for the Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire and Stabilization of the demarcation line of the parties on the page of the headquarters of the operation of the United Forces on Facebook published a photo of the shelling by the Golden-4 fighters on October 28.
After the Golden, the separation of forces and means should take place in Petrovsky, said the speaker of the head of the Ukrainian delegation at the talks, the second president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, Dark Olifer. At the headquarters of the environmental protection system, they said that it could begin on November 4–5.
