State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert has called on Russia and military forces under its control to stop shelling the OSCE observers in the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine.

"I’m seeing reports Russia-subordinated personnel fired a weapon to intimidate unarmed OSCE SMM monitors in eastern Ukraine. OSCE SMM risks their lives to protect civilians. Russia should stop this deplorable behavior before more SMM personnel are killed and get out of Ukraine," she wrote on Saturday.

Earlier, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) reported that militants in Pikuzy (Volnovaskyi district) opened fire in the direction of SMM patrol members on June 14.
