Over two months, Russia delivered three railway cars and 34 cars with ammunition, mortars, electronic warfare systems “Triton” and “Leer-3”, as well as 84 cisterns with fuel, to certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

“In two months, from 18 March until 20 May, the Russian side sent 3 rail wagons with ammunition, 34 cars with ammunition, mortars, UAVs, mines, and electronic warfare systems “Triton” and “Leer-3”, as well as 84 cisterns with fuel and lubricants,” Ambassador Yevhenii Tsymbaliuk, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna, said at the OSCE Permanent Council meeting on June 10.

According to him, in view of this, it is clear why Russia so strongly opposes any steps aimed at enhancing the monitoring of the Ukraine–Russia state border by the OSCE.

Tsymbaliuk also drew the attention of foreign diplomats to the fact that the SMM spotted last week 139 heavy weapons outside designated storage sites, namely in the training areas in the occupied parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

“Unpredictable military intentions of the Russian side remain a serious security challenge for Ukraine. Reluctance by the Russian side to ensure necessary military transparency, including under the Vienna Document 2011, only adds reasons for concern,” Tsymbaliuk added.

As reported, in May, Russian armed formations launched 271 attacks in eastern Ukraine, killing four Ukrainian soldiers and wounding 18 more.
