Pro-Russian rebels say withdrawing artillery in east Ukraine: Interfax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists have started pulling back artillery from positions in the southern part of their Donetsk separatist region in east Ukraine, Russian news agency Interfax quoted a separatist leader as saying on Thursday.

“The militia have started pulling back artillery units with a caliber greater than 100 millimeters in the south of the republic,” said Denis Pushilin, vice speaker of the separatists’ “people’s council”, a leadership body.
