The OSCE also recorded the presence of 1 Ukrainian armored combat vehicle near the village of Berezovoye.
«The Ukrarain troops evacuated an artillery depot in the zone of the so-called ‘operation of the combined forces’ because of the approaching fire» — the official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR, Yakov Osadchy, reported. He added that in order to preserve the lives, health and property of the people living in the territory, controlled by Ukraine — the People’s Militia once again gave security guarantees to the special aviation that is currently extinguishing the fires near the line of contact.
The existing measures, taken to enhance the ceasefire, continue to contribute to the restoration of the civilian infrastructure of the Donbass republics.
