Both sides of Donbas conflict must withdraw their troops from the line of contact in order to open Donetsk-Horlivka route for civilian transport, informed Deputy Head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission Alexander Hug informed “Interfax-Ukraine”.

“We witnessed extensive military operations around this territory (Donetsk-Horlivka route). Civilians using this route would have been under threat. I reiterate: safety measure cannot justify the fact that this route is permanently closed for civilians”, - Hug stated.

He also mentioned that the decision to open Donetsk-Horlivka route for civilians depends on both sides of the military conflict.
