Pro-Russian rebels in east Ukraine said Monday that they will only start pulling back weapons from the frontline under a peace deal once there is a "full ceasefire".
"In accordance with the Minsk agreement, the withdrawal of military hardware can only happen under certain conditions and one of them is a full ceasefire," Eduard Basurin, a spokesman for the defence ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic was quoted as saying by the rebels' official news agency.
