The OSCE SMM patrol was almost under small-arms fire on the territory that’s under control of the “DPR” militants, according to the mission’s report.

“At 14:08, five SMM members were standing in between the SMM’s armoured vehicles when they heard the hissing sound of three bullets flying west to east over their heads and saw one of the bullets land 10-15m east of the SMM. The SMM patrol immediately left the area and returned safely to its base in Donetsk city at 14:55,” the report said.

The incident occurred yesterday, Feb. 2, about 2.5km south-west of “DPR”-controlled Yasynuvata.

Before this, the mission spotted a few more attacks. 

“Between 13:00 and 13:50, the SMM recorded five undetermined explosions, 11 shots of infantry fighting vehicle (BMP-2) cannon (30mm) fire and 34 bursts and shots of heavy-machine-gun and small-arms fire, all 1-2km west. Between 13:50 and 14:08, the SMM heard uncountable overlapping bursts and shots of heavy-machine-gun and small-arms fire 1-2km west,” the report said.
