Zelensky recalled that the disengagement occurred on one site - in Stanytsia Luhanska.

"Now there are preparatory moments for disengagement in Petrovske and Zolote. There is no disengagement there due to the violation of the ceasefire, but I think that everything will happen, and the next step will be a meeting in the Normandy format. I just do not know other information", - Zelensky said.
