"Withdrawal will start not on Oct. 18, but three days later, on Oct. 21. Firstly, the tanks and guns of less than 100mm caliber will be withdrawn," Eduard Basurin, 'DPR' Deputy Defense minister said on Saturday. He also stressed that the schedule of withdrawal is coordinated with the OSCE representatives.
