Members of the Ukrainian Armed Forces could be seen constructing new fortifications on November 2 after the Ukrainian military and Russia-backed separatist forces began a phased troop withdrawal earlier this week further away from the so-called line of control separating the two sides in eastern Ukrainian regions. Kyiv's military and Moscow-backed separatists began their disengagement in Zolote on October 29, part of a series of measures aimed at ending a conflict that has killed more than 13,000 people in the last five years. Some nearby villages are now part of a "no-man's-land" that are being patrolled by Ukrainian troops.
