18:56, 27 December 2018

The militants of occupied Donbas disrupted the mine clearance process near the Mariinka checkpoint. The HQ of the Joint Forces Operation reported this citing the Ukrainian side of the Joint Coordination and Control Center.

The Ukrainian military planned to close the road traffic through the checkpoint on December 27. However, the day before the scheduled works, Russian mercenaries informed the OSCE that no safety guarantees will be provided for the engineers working in the area. Thus, they disregarded their own commitments once again.
