Ukraine’s military says it will start pulling back its heavy weapons from the front line with Russian-backed separatists as required under a ceasefire agreement.

The Defence Ministry said in a statement that it reserved the right to revise its withdrawal plans in the event of an attack by rebel forces.

The international monitors overseeing the ceasefire in Ukraine complained earlier in the day that the warring sides were dragging their feet in complying with requirements to pull back their weapons.

Ukrainian officials said the first weapons to be pulled back today would be 100mm calibre field guns.
