The armed formations of the Russian Federation continue to grossly violate the Minsk agreements, deploying military hardware in violation of withdrawal lines and outside of designated storage sites, the press center of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) has reported on Facebook.

According to a report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission of March 4, on March 2, an SMM mini-UAV spotted 20 multiple launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) near Krasnolutskyi (52km south-west of Luhansk); seven multiple launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) in a training area near Miusynsk (62km south-west of Luhansk); seven multiple launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) in a compound south-west of Sadovyi (57km south-west of Luhansk); and six multiple launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm) traveling south on a road south-west of Ivanivka (46km south-west of Luhansk). The specified weapons were placed in violation of the withdrawal lines.

In addition, on March 2, an SMM mini-UAV spotted 11 tanks (8 T-64B/T-64BM and 3 T72B), 10 self-propelled howitzers (2S1 Gvozdika, 122mm) and 12 towed howitzers (D-30 Lyagushka, 122mm) in a training area near Miusynsk (62km south-west of Luhansk). On March 3, an SMM patrol recorded two tanks (T-72) in a training area near Kruhlyk (31km south-west of Luhansk). The weapons were deployed beyond withdrawal lines but outside of designated storage sites.

The Ukrainian side of the JCCC said that the armed formations of the Russian Federation once again demonstrated their reluctance to comply with the Minsk agreements.
