OSCE spots train moving from occupied Donbas to Russia

An OSCE SMM spotted a train with at least 12 wagons, which was moving from the village of Kvashyne in occupied Donetsk region to the Russian Federation.

The OSCE SMM informed this in a report, based on information received as of 19:30, July 14, 2019.

"On the night of July 12, an SMM long-range UAV spotted a train (with at least 12 wagons, cargo not visible) facing an easterly direction at the train station in Kvashyne (non-government-controlled, 65km south-east of Donetsk). Within a 15-minute span, the same train was spotted moving in a south-easterly direction about 4.5km south-east of Kvashyne and then exiting Ukraine," the report says.

On the same night, about 1km east of Manych (non-government-controlled, 76km east of Donetsk), an SMM long-range UAV spotted a truck (with two people in its rear) moving north-east on dirt and asphalt roads towards the border with the Russian Federation where there are no border crossing facilities. The same truck was then spotted in a field about 3.5km east-north-east of Manych and about 200m west of the border.

According to the report, on July 14, while at a border crossing point near Voznesenivka (formerly Chervonopartyzansk, 65km south-east of Luhansk), the SMM saw six cars (three with Ukrainian and one with Russian Federation licence plates, as well as two with “DPR” and “LPR” plates) and a bus (with Russian Federation licence plates) exiting Ukraine. After five minutes, a member of the armed formations asked the SMM to leave the area.

“On the same day, at the Chervona Mohyla railway station near Voznesenivka, the SMM saw a cargo train heading east, but could not determine the number of railway cars and their contents. After a few minutes, a member of the armed formations told the SMM to leave the area," the report notes.
