"Berlin is very concerned about the increase in the intensity of hostilities in the east of Ukraine, as well as the message of the General Staff of the Ukrainian army, according to which the Ukrainian Armed Forces, in response to shelling and the death of one soldier and wounding of another, used a Bayraktar-type drone," Sasse said.
The representative of German diplomacy stated that now all sides are using drones in the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine. Sasse underlined that the Minsk agreements gave this right exclusively to the OSCE mission.
As we reported, since the beginning of the day, October 27, Russian mercenaries violated the ceasefire in Donbas nine times. As a result of the shelling, one soldier was killed.
The Ukrainian military have deployed Bayraktar, the Turkey-made combat drone in the Donbas combat area for the first time. The UAV destroyed the cannon of Russian mercenaries.
