OSCE records fewer ceasefire violations in Donbas

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded fewer ceasefire violations in Donetsk and Luhansk regions on August 14.

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

"In Donetsk region, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations, including fewer explosions (38), compared with the previous reporting period (87 explosions)," the report says.

More than half of the ceasefire violations, including almost half of the explosions, were recorded in areas south-south-east and south of Pyshchevyk (government-controlled, 25km north-east of Mariupol), at southerly directions of Avdiivka (government-controlled, 17km north of Donetsk) and Yasynuvata (non-government-controlled, 16km north-east of Donetsk) and in areas north-east of Pervomaiske (government-controlled, 17km north-west of Donetsk).

"In Luhansk region, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations, all explosions (three), compared with the previous reporting period (two explosions)," the report notes.

In addition, at the entry-exit checkpoint (EECP) in Maiorsk (government-controlled, 45km north-east of Donetsk), the SMM saw three holes on the south-facing metal wall of one of the booths located at the south-eastern edge of the EECP. It assessed the damage as fresh and caused by 5.47mm or 7.62mm bullets. Officers of the State Border Guard Services of Ukraine at the EECP told the Mission that the damage had occurred three days prior at night.
