There were attempts to shoot at a drone of OSCE Special Monitoring Mission from the Donbas’s territory not controlled by Ukraine, as the website of the organization reports.

“At 05:06 on 15 June, an SMM long-range unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that was flying over Betmanove (non-government-controlled, formerly Krasnyi Partyzan, 23km north-east of Donetsk) recorded a condensation trail of a missile following a ballistic trajectory at a significantly lower altitude than the UAV from the north-east,“ the message says.

Later, the drone found a surface-to-air missile system (9K33 Osa), located with the violation of withdrawal lines “about 2km north-west of Panteleimonivka (non-government-controlled, 26km north-east of Donetsk)”.

“About three minutes later, the UAV recorded a probable anti-aircraft gun (ZU-23, 23mm) located near the surface-to-air missile system also firing several rounds in the direction of the UAV. The SMM assessed the fire as directed at the UAV which was returned to base safely,” the representatives of the organization reported.
