OSCE: Both sides in Donbas conflict keep Minsk-banned weaponry near division line
Observers spotted Grad missile launchers on the both sides of the line
Both Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed militants breach the Minsk agreements by keeping their artillery close to the division line in war-torn Donbas. Alexander Hug, First Deputy Chief of the OSCE’s special monitoring mission in Ukraine, reported this at Friday briefing.
‘On Tuesday, we spotted eight multiple missile launchers Grad on the Ukraine-controlled territories, and 11 more of such weapons in the areas, that are out of control of the Ukrainian government; 90 pieces of shrapnel were spotted in the various sections of the division line’, he said.
According to him, OSCE observers also reported an increase of violence in the combat area over the last week.
