Russian-backed militants do not fulfill their obligations to divert heavy weapons along the entire demarcation line of the parties in the Donbas combat zone. The press service of Joint Forces operation reported this.
“The Ukrainian party of the joint center for monitoring and coordination on the cease-fire regime and stabilization of the demarcation reports that the armed forces of the Russian Federation are concentrating dozens of tanks, howitzers and anti-aircraft missile systems, which are located in the lines and permanent storage sites with violations,” the report said.
According to the air surveillance data, the presence of 14 multiple-launch rocket systems was detected at the so-called test field near the town of Miusinsk. OSCE representatives also found 12 tanks near Shymshynivka settlement, 12 tanks, 7 self-propelled howitzers, and 13 towed howitzers, as well as 3 anti-aircraft missile systems near Miusinsk, and 24 tanks near the village of Kruhlyk.
“Besides, on May 7, the OSCE mission spotted at least 5 T-72 tanks at a test field near Pokrovka village (east of Donetsk),” the report added.
