Ceasefire from September 1 remains in Donbas first time since early May, - Hug
Although OSCE notes likelihood of conflict re-escalation
For the first time since early May the situation in most areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions remains relatively calm. The deputy head of the OSCE SMM Alexander Hug stated this during a briefing.
"For example, on Monday, we recorded only 5 explosions throughout the territory of Donetsk region. Similarly, the relatively calm situation was observed in the Luhansk region. No ceasefire violation case has been detected on weekend. Only 3 single shelling with small arms", Hug said.
The OSCE noted that even before September 1 was recorded hundreds and even thousands of attacks, but with the beginning of the new academic year, "violence has fallen to a relatively low level".
However, the OSCE noted the likelihood of the re-escalation of the conflict.
Recall that Trilateral Contact Group met in Minsk on August 26 regarding the Donbas conflict. The statement on the total ceasefire from September 1 was announced there.
