“On 30 November, at a checkpoint about 800m north of Zaichenko (non-governmentcontrolled, 93km south of Donetsk), two armed members of the armed formations again denied the SMM passage southwards to Sakhanka (non-government-controlled, 97km south of Donetsk) and westwards to Pikuzy (formerly Kominternove, non-governmentcontrolled, 92km south of Donetsk), citing ‘demining activities,” reads the report.

Also, on that day, at a checkpoint west of Bezimenne (non-government-controlled, 100km south of Donetsk), an armed member of the armed formations again denied the SMM passage, citing “demining activities”.

“On 1 December, at a checkpoint near Verkhnoshyrokivske (formerly Oktiabr, nongovernment-controlled, 85km south of Donetsk), a member of the armed formations again denied the SMM passage to non-government-controlled areas, citing “demining activities near Sakhanka and Pikuzy”.
