OSCE drone spots militants in disengagement area near Petrivske

An OSCE SMM drone has spotted people near former positions of Russian armed formations inside the disengagement area near Petrivske.

The SMM said this in a report issued on January 5, based on information from the monitoring teams received as of 19:30 on January 4, 2021.

"During the day on January 1, inside the disengagement area near Petrivske (non-government-controlled, 41km south of Donetsk), an SMM mini-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) spotted five people wearing camouflage clothing: three at a former position of the armed formations near the area’s south-eastern corner, and two about 300m north-west of its south-eastern corner, walking in a southerly direction," the report reads.

On the eastern edge of the area, in a field about 375m north-north-west of its south-eastern corner, the UAV also spotted a stationary car.

In addition, on January 4, near the checkpoint of the armed formations south of the disengagement area near Zolote, the Mission saw four members of the armed formations (wearing armbands with “JCCC” written on them), who in pairs walked inside the area to about 350m north of its southern edge and then returned, on two separate occasions.
