The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded 27 Grad multiple launch rocket systems at two training areas in the occupied Donbas in violation of the Minsk agreements.

The OSCE SMM informed this in a report, based on information received as of 19:30, August 21, 2019.

“On August 20, an SMM long-range UAV spotted five multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) in a training area near Ternove (57km east of Donetsk); and 22 MLRS (BM-21) near Khrustalnyi (formerly Krasnyi Luch, 56km south-west of Luhansk)," the report says.

In addition, an SMM long-range UAV spotted six self-propelled howitzers (2S1 Gvozdika, 122mm), six towed howitzers (D-30 Lyagushka, 122mm) and six anti-tank guns (MT-12 Rapira, 100mm) in a training area near Shymshynivka (27km south-west of Luhansk).

The next day, August 21, the SMM saw six MLRS (BM-21) in the training area near Ternove.

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

“On August 20, an SMM long-range UAV spotted 14 tanks (eight T-64 and six undetermined variants) in the training area near Ternove (see above); 12 towed howitzers (four 2A36 Giatsint-B, 152mm, four 2A65 Msta-B, 152mm and four 2A36 or 2A65), a self-propelled howitzer (2S1) and three tanks (T-72) near Khrustalnyi; and 12 tanks (probable T-64) in a training area near Shymshynivka," the report noted.
