The drone of the OSCE mission spotted four jet military airplanes above the village of Lastochkine on February 21. This settlement is controlled by Ukraine and is located near the demarcation line, according to the website of the mission.

"Four military jets flew over Lastochkine (19 km north-west from Donetsk) from north to south, and then turned to the south-west at an altitude of about 3000 feet (915 meters, - ed.)," the mission’s report says.

According to OSCE data, in comparison with the previous reporting period, observers recorded fewer violations of the ceasefire regime in the Donetsk region, but more such cases in the Luhansk region.

Earlier we reported that the American military aircraft flew over Russia. The Boeing OC-135B American military aircraft with 61-2670 tail number made an observation flight over the territory of Russia on the night of February 23 within the framework of the Treaty on Open Skies, Voice of America reports.

This flight was the first since November 2017. According to Pentagon spokesman Jamie Davis, the long break between flights is explained by the tension that has arisen in US-Russian relations.

Reportedly, the Open Skies Treaty was signed in Helsinki on March 24, 1992, by representatives of 23 OSCE member states. Russia ratified the treaty in May 2001.
