OSCE observed the Ukrainian army’s military equipment near the contact line with the territory controlled by the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), the spokesman of the LPR People’s Militia Lieutenant Colonel Andrey Marochko said, the Lugansk Information Center reported on May 17.
“The observers of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) continue to report violations of the agreements in the security zone committed by the Ukrainian side,” Andrey Marochko said.
The lieutenant colonel also noted that, according to a report of May 16, an OSCE drone detected the Ukrainian army’s armored vehicles at the Muratovo, Krymskoe, and Schastye settlements.
“The same day, an SMM’s mini-drone found a pontoon-bridge park, two bridge erection boats, and an amphibious tractor on the Seversky Donets river, as well as an excavation machine for digging entrenchments north-west of Krymskoe,” he added.
Despite the Minsk agreements signed on February 11-12, 2015 with the participation of Russia, Germany, France, and Ukraine, Kiev has repeatedly violated the agreements and consistently impeded the de-escalation of the conflict in the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics.
