The Ukrainian side to the Joint Center for Coordination and Ceasefire Regime Control (JSCC) has refuted allegations of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) about possession of chemical weapon by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Press center of the ATO headquarters has written this on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the report, on April 17, the Luhansk Informational Center website published a material citing a representative from the so-called LPR' militia about presence of poisoning substances at military depots of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Stanytsia-Luhanska region.

"The information presented in that material is not true, because on January 13, 1993, the country's government signed the Convention on Prohibition of Development, Production, Storage and Use of Chemical Weapon and Disposal Thereof," the statement reads.

JSCC stresses that Ukraine has fulfilled its obligations under the convention in full, as well as obligations under the Convention on Prohibition of Use, Accumulation, Production and Distribution of Antipersonnel Landmines and Disposal Thereof.

Ukrainian side to the JSCC considers such allegations as an attempt by militants to discredit leadership of Ukraine and accuse it of breach of the international law.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukrainian side to the JSCC accuses militants of violating a ceasefire agreement reached by the Trilateral Contact Group that was due to start at 10 a.m. on April 13.
