According to the mission’s daily report published on August 7, The SMM continued to insist on accountability and responsibility for violations related to impediments to SMM monitoring and verification. ‘Zakharchenko continued to refuse to meet the SMM in order to indicate effective steps taken in response to the incident on 29 July when SMM monitors were threatened at gunpoint by aggressive armed “DPR” members near Lukove (72km south of Donetsk)’, reads the statement by the OSCE SMM in eastern Ukraine.

Back then, a member of an illegal armed unit pointed a gun at OSCE observers, threatening to shoot them.
