Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky plans the disengagement of forces along the entire contact line in Donbas after troops have been pulled back in the first three areas, namely the town of Zolote, and the villages of Stanytsia Luhanska and Petrivske.

"After these three areas, he plans the disengagement along all 400 km so that people stop dying along the 400 km, little by little. I believe he had no moral right... to wait longer," Prytsaiko told the Pravo na Vladu [Right to Power] TV panel show.

The minister also spoke about Zelensky's trip to Stanytsia Luhanska, where the latter promised to repair the destroyed bridge across the Siversky Donets River.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the disengagement of troops and weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Russia-led forces near the village of Stanytsia Luhanska took place in June 2019.

Zelensky said on September 13 that the withdrawal of troops in Petrivske and Zolote would be the next phase of the peace process in Donbas.

On October 1, he announced the disengagement of troops in Petrivske and Zolote.
