All heavy weapons of the Ukrainian army units taking part in the military operation in south-eastern Ukraine are currently in the settlements located within the 30-kilometer buffer zone, which is a direct violation of the Minsk agreements, Donetsk Republic defense milistry spokesman Eduard Basurin told at a local press briefing on Thursday.

He showed the attending reporters a map depicting the areas where artillery systems and multiple rocket launchers of Kiev-controlled units are secretly deployed. According to the information provided by Basurin, 47 Uragan and Grad multiple rocket launchers, a large number of MSTA-B artillery pieces and Akatsiya self-propelled artillery systems and other types of heavy weapons have not been withdrawn from the 30-kilometer zone to date.

"Despite the statements made by Ukrainian side on heavy weapons withdrawal completion new cases of heavy weapons deployment along the engagement line are registered," he said.

"The DPR Defence Ministry continues to receive disturbing intelligence reports about Kiev boosting its military presence in the security zone.

"Basurin urged the Ukrainian side "to give up provocations and strictly observe Minsk peace deal provisions." He also drew the attention of the OSCE monitoring mission to the need to oversee the implementation of Minsk agreements by all parties to the conflict.
