The overall number of attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas has grown, OSCE monitoring mission says. Daryna Olifer, the press secretary of Ukraine’s envoy in Minsk negotiation group posted that on Facebook.

‘The last attack near Stanytsia Luhanska took place on December 2. If there are no attacks for the next seven days, we’ll be able to divide troops and vehicles in this area,’ she said.

Olifer added that on the same day, observers found a MON-50 landmine and a booby trap. ‘Ukraine’s ammunition factories never produced such kind of ammunition. This mine was brought from Russia; the marks on the ammunition confirm that,’ she said.
