The Embassy of the United States in Ukraine has stated that the Russian Federation must provide uninterrupted access the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to eastern Ukraine.

The Embassy of the United States in Ukraine wrote this on Twitter.

“An OSCE SMM drone that spotted an illegal convoy from Russia was jammed and then lost in Russia-controlled eastern Ukraine. Russia must provide the OSCE’s SMM unfettered access to eastern Ukraine, and implement all Minsk agreement provisions,” reads the report.

As reported, on 27 October, while flying over an area near Kalynove (non-government controlled area in Donetsk region), an SMM long-range unmanned aerial vehicle spotted a surface-to-air missile system (9K33 Osa) and a fuel truck east of Nyzhnokrynske. The UAV also spotted a convoy of seven trucks on a dirt road near the border with the Russian Federation where there are no border crossing facilities, and then it disappeared.
