The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) has spotted 68 anti-tank mines planted by Russian armed formations on a taxiway at the destroyed Donetsk International Airport.

The OSCE SMM said this in a report issued on October 28, based on information from the monitoring teams received as of 19:30 on October 27, 2020.

“On 24 October, an SMM mini-UAV again spotted at least 45 anti-tank mines laid in three rows across a taxiway at the destroyed Donetsk international airport (8km north-west of Donetsk),” the report reads.

In addition, about 160m south of these, laid in three rows across the taxiway, the same UAV again spotted at least 23 anti-tank mines. "All these mines were assessed as belonging to the armed formations," the Mission notes.

The SMM also reports on anti-tank mines found in the occupied Luhansk region.

"On 26 October, about 1.5km north-west of Vesela Hora (non-government-controlled, 16km north of Luhansk) and about 30m west of road H-21, an SMM mini-UAV spotted 15 anti-tank mines laid in a single row, assessed as belonging to the armed formations," the report says.
