The Joint Coordination and Control center drew the attention of the civilian population to the necessity to increase vigilance during the movement in the JFO zone.

As we reported, the pro-Russian militants banned OSCE representatives to enter the temporarily occupied territories once again. The patrol of the mission wanted to enter the territory near Verhnioshyrokivske.

Recently, we reported that the Ukrainian side did not withdraw its anti-aircraft missile systems 9K33 Osa. The OSCE claimed that this is a violation of the Minsk agreements, but Joint Forces Operation staff denies it.
