"According to the agreements reached before, now there are monitors and workers of the press service of the regiment in Shirokino and the nearby area," the report read.
Earlier a group of OSCE monitors came under fire near the village which has recently become the main flash point in Donbass. Currently the idea of demilitarization of the village is being discussed.
Meanwhile, Alexander Kikhtenko, head of the Donetsk military and civil administration, opposed the withdrawal from Shirokino. According to him, defensive positions in the area should be bolstered.
The settlement of the crisis has been discussed at various talks, including during the contact group meeting in Minsk, Belarus. The February 12 meeting resulted in approving measures for the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
The agreements presume a ceasefire in Donbass since February 15, heavy weapons withdrawal and the creation of a security zone.
Shortly after the ceasefire began in Donbass, fighting resumed in the region. Both sides of the conflict blame each other for the numerous ceasefire violations, with each side claiming that it is only returning fire.
