The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded seven Grad multiple launch rocket systems in the occupied Luhansk region in violation of the Minsk agreements.

The OSCE SMM informed this in a report, based on information received as of 19:30, August 12, 2019.

“On August 10, an SMM long-range UAV spotted seven multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) in a training area near Miusynsk (62km south-west of Luhansk); two towed howitzers (2A65 Msta-B, 152mm) near Vilkhivka (40km east of Donetsk); and 22 MLRS (BM-21) near Khrustalnyi (formerly Krasnyi Luch, 56km south-west of Luhansk)," the report says.

All of these weapons were placed beyond withdrawal lines but outside designated storage sites.

“On August 7, aerial imagery available to the SMM revealed the presence of three tanks (type undetermined) at a training area near Shymshynivka (27km south-west of Luhansk); 16 tanks and 16 pieces of towed artillery at a training area near Myrne (28km south-west of Luhansk)," the report notes.
