Russian invaders continue to impede the work of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (OSCE SMM) in eastern Ukraine, the press center of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Headquarters reports.

On Tuesday, members of Russian-led armed formations again denied the SMM attempts to cross into non-government-controlled areas along official crossing routes.

“The Russian invaders continue to impede the implementation of the SMM’s mandate, referring to quarantine restrictions. Today, members of the armed formations again denied the SMM passage at checkpoints along official crossing routes,” the report says.

The Mission began facing repeated denials when attempting to cross into non-government-controlled areas at checkpoints of the armed formations in Donetsk region on March 21 and Luhansk region on March 23. They restrict the SMM’s freedom of movement across the contact line, thus impeding the implementation of its mandate throughout the country.
