“We have an oral agreement, now we want to decide if we’ll sign [an agreement] or not,” Igor Plotnitsky said.
Plotnisky said that he hoped that a working Contact group would hold a meeting in Luhansk on Wednesday, where the ceasefire agreement would be given documentary evidence.
On Tuesday Plotnitsky said a ceasefire agreement had been reached with Kiev, but this assertion not confirmed by Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council.
Later that day, the parliament of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) said that it had agreed on a ceasefire with Kiev in the contested area of the Donetsk airport. DPR is planning to begin withdrawing military hardware from the area by December 9-10.
According to the United Nations, some 4,300 people have been killed and almost 10,000 have been injured since the beginning of the armed conflict in southeastern Ukraine.
Earlier this week, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed hope that the conflicting parties in eastern Ukraine would adhere to the Minsk agreements.
