    Leader of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky said Tuesday he was ready to sign an agreement on weapons pullout in Donbass on September 30.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Participants of the Contact Group on Ukraine initialed on Tuesday an agreement on the withdrawal of weaponry with caliber under 100-mm and tanks from a separation line between Kiev-led forces and Donbass militia in eastern Ukraine.

    "This is a much-anticipated news for people who live along the contact line," the Lugansk Information Center quoted Plotnitsky as saying.

    "I hope that this document, which we will sign tomorrow, will open the way for further implementation of the Minsk agreements."
