The OSCE SMM informed this in a report, based on information received as of 19:30, August 16, 2019.
"In Donetsk region, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations, however, more explosions (52), compared with the previous reporting period (about 40 explosions)," the report says.
The majority of ceasefire violations were recorded in areas south-south-east and south of Pyshchevyk (government-controlled, 25km north-east of Mariupol) and in areas south of Kruta Balka (non-government-controlled, 16km north-east of Donetsk). The ceasefire violations registered at the latter area were assessed as part of a live-fire exercise inside the security zone, in violation of the decision of the Trilateral Contact Group of 3 March 2016 that prohibits the conduct of live-fire training in the security zone.
"In Luhansk region, the SMM recorded more ceasefire violations, including more explosions (35), compared with the previous reporting period (nine explosions)," the report notes.
The majority of ceasefire violations were recorded in areas south-east and south of Popasna (government-controlled, 69km west of Luhansk).
