The opening of the patrol base will take place during the visit of the Deputy Head of the OSCE mission in Donbas Alexander Hug. He’s about to come to Schastya on Wednesday, May 25, reads the message at the OSCE’s official website.

The patrol bases are supposed to expand presence of OSCE monitors in the areas where there’s most intensive military action. “That’ll let the Mission react to the incident faster and more effectively”, the message says.

Currently, there are eight OSCE patrol bases. Five of them are located in the government-held territories – in Volnovakha, Krasnoarmiysk, Svitlodarsk (Donetsk region) and Novoaidar (Luhansk region). Three more are stationed in the militant-held areas – Stakhanov (Luhansk region), Horlivka and Debaltseve (Donetsk region).
