During the current day, January 5, the pro-Russian militants three times violated the ceasefire in Donbas conflict zone. The press center of the Joint Forces Operation reported that on Facebook.
"The strongholds of our troops were fired from grenade launchers of various systems and small arms near the town of Avdiivka in Donetsk sector and near the villages of Pavlopol, Lebedynske in the Mariupol sector," the report said.
It is noted that as due to the shelling, no casualties in the ranks of the Joint Forces reported.
Earlier, we reported that militants in Donbas prohibited OSCE mission observers from entering objects and territories they control. This was reported by the JFO headquarters on Facebook, citing information from the Ukrainian side of the Joint Coordination and Control Centre.
“The Ukrainian side of the JCCC informs that the armed forces of the Russian Federation and their mercenaries in Donbas prohibit OSCE SMM observers from entering the objects and territories controlled by them, thereby hindering the mission’s activities,” the report said.
According to the report of the OSCE mission yesterday, the facts of the restriction of freedom of movement, the prohibition of access and other obstacles were reported.
In particular, at a checkpoint near Izvaryne, one of the militants ordered the mission patrol to leave the area.
At the checkpoint located at the northern entrance to Novoazovsk, five militants did not allow the mission patrol to pass to the center of the city and to the east.
“The Ukrainian side of the JCCC considers unacceptable such aggressive actions of the Russian occupation forces, which have acquired a systemic nature and lead to an escalation of tension both on the line of demarcation and generally in the area of the Joint forces operation,” the statement said.
