The overall situation in eastern Ukraine remains relatively calm and the withdrawal of the artillery with caliber less than 100mm is already completed in Artemivsk direction.

Noteworthy, that militants prevent the OSCE verification work of arms pullout process, as reported by the Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine Alexander Hug at the briefing October 29.

“OSCE SMM continues monitoring the process of the removal of artillery caliber less than 100 mm and mortars of 120 mm. The mission visited the places of withdrawal. I note with regret that at the areas uncontrolled by Ukrainian government, the OSCE mission was blocked to see such sites of weapons storages," Hug said.
