Rebels continue to block access to OSCE monitors to certain areas in Donbas

The rebels keep on blocking the access of OSCE special monitoring mission to certain areas of Donbas.

Representative of the chief intelligence directorate of the defense ministry of Ukraine Vadym Skybytsky told Ukrinform.

"Within the framework of hiding their activities and preparation for shelling attacks the rebels do not allow the special representatives of the OSCE to travel to certain areas. According to updated information, on March 26 the OSCE mission observers were detained by a military unit from the 11th separate regiment outside Donetsk filtration plan, when the rebels were camouflaging heavy weapons deployed in the area," he said.

Skybytsky noted that last week there were recorded 32 violations of the Minsk agreements by the rebels who didn’t withdraw heavy weapons.
