OSCE records attacks on Ukrainian positions near Stanytsia Luhanska

An OSCE SMM patrol recorded the effects of the enemy’s shelling of an observation post of the forward Ukrainian position near Stanytsia Luhanska.

The OSCE SMM informed this in a report, based on information received as of 19:30, June 18, 2019.

"On June 15, inside the disengagement area near Stanytsia Luhanska(government-controlled, 16km north-east of Luhansk), the SMM observed ten holes (1-2cm in diameter, 20cm-4m above ground) in and around an observation post of a Ukrainian Armed Forces forward position: two in its south-facing inner and two in its south-facing outer wall, as well as six more in two military barriers (one made of sandbags and the other of concrete) located immediately south of the observation post," the report says.

The SMM assessed all holes as fresh and caused by small-arms fired.

The report notes that the SMM continued to monitor the withdrawal of weapons in implementation of the Memorandum and the Package of Measures and its Addendum.
