OSCE SMM observers, regardless of the Minsk Agreements, can’t get into storages of heavy weapons of the “DNR” militants, the organization wrote in their report

In particular, the mission reports a few instances when their patrol was denied access to two storage units of the militants. In one of them, the mission couldn’t verify the withdrawal of six multiple launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm). In some of the storages that they were allowed to see, many arms were missing, while all weapons present were visibly non-operational.

“In Petrivske, an armed “DPR” member told the SMM it was not allowed to fly its unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) despite having informed the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC) of its intent to do so. While waiting for clarification, the SMM heard a voice on the “DPR” member’s hand-held radio saying (in Russian), “Tell the machine-gunner to take up the position, just in case,” the mission also informed.
