'In Donetsk region, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations, including, however, more explosions (about 85), compared with the previous reporting period (about 50 explosions). In Luhansk region, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations, including three explosions, compared with the previous reporting period (seven explosions)', the OSCE wrote in the report.
The Mission also said it continued to 'monitor the disengagement process and to pursue full access to the disengagement areas' - specifically, near Stanytsia Luhanska (16km north-east of Luhansk), Zolote (60km west of Luhansk) and Petrivske (41km south of Donetsk).
Observers also said that the Ukrainian army keeps its military vehicles in safety zones. 'In government-controlled areas, the SMM saw an armoured personnel carrier (BMP-variant) near Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk), an armoured fire control vehicle (MT‑LBu variant) in Pervomaiske (17km north-west of Donetsk), and an anti-aircraft gun (ZU-23, 23mm) being towed near Shchastia (20km north of Luhansk)', reads the report.
