Representatives of Kiev for the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the ceasefire in Donbass are going to leave the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic, the head of the DPR representative office in the JCCC, Ruslan Yakubov, informed.
As explained, four officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were involved in two observation groups in the south on the territory of the republic and in Donetsk.
"The Ukrainian party in the JCCC appealed to the head of the representative office of the Russian Federation in the JCCC with the request to withdraw its observers from our territory, explaining this decision with fears for the security of the AFU officers. We, in turn, declare that the representatives of the Ukrainian Armed Forces as part of the observation groups in the territory of the DRR are not threatened and the fears of the Ukrainian side are artificial and groundless," Yakubov said.
