    The latest agreement on disengagement of forces in Stanytsia Luhanska in eastern Ukraine has been derailed by Kiev authorities, Russia's envoy to the Contact Group on Ukraine Boris Gryzlov said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Trilateral Contact Group has coordinated at its previous meeting in Minsk the disengagement of forces and weaponry in Stanytsia Luhanska on March 7.

    "Unfortunately, the disengagement did not take place again. There were no reasons for that to happen other than the position of the Ukrainian side," Gryzlov told reporters.

    "The agreement has been derailed by Kiev authorities," Gryzlov stressed.
