OSCE records invaders’ positions at Petrivske disengagement area

The OSCE SMM has recorded the efforts of Russian-occupation troops to restore their previous positions in Petrivske disengagement area in Donbas.

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna Yevhenii Tsymbaliuk said this during an online meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council on Thursday, May 28, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Ensuring a full and comprehensive ceasefire remains crucial to the implementation of the agreed conclusions of the Paris Summit in the Normandy format, which Russia still does not fulfill. Instead of creating new disengagement areas, Russia is returning its troops. The SMM spotted ground and construction works at previous positions of the Russian armed formations inside the disengagement area near Petrivske (non-government-controlled, 41km south of Donetsk)," he said.

The Ukrainian diplomat emphasized that without implementing the measures agreed in Paris to stabilize the security situation in the conflict zone, "it is impossible to move to the second stage to implement the political provisions of the Minsk agreements."
