Donetsk, Oct 6 – DAN. Kiev forces started planting mine belts in the vicinity of Petrovskoye village, where the disengagement is scheduled for October, 7th, according to DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin.

"Our intelligence found out that Ukraine's 30th brigade engineering units organize mine belts in the area designated for the disengagement under the framework agreement," he said.

Basurin stated that such an activity means Ukraine is unwilling to pull back forces in the zone, and all "fabricated pretexts were aimed at distracting public and OSCE, and JCCC attention".
