"As of March 1, the LPR People's Militia has fully completed the withdrawal of heavy weapons in accordance with the Minsk agreements. The withdrawal of weapons was overseen by representatives of the OSCE mission," the LPR said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the militants of the DPR also claim to have completed the withdrawal of heavy weapons beyond the line of demarcation.
