Ukrainian Armed Forces obstructed the work of OSCE’s UAVs
«The Ukrainian troops have installed ‘mine warning’ signs on the road in the zone of the so-called ‘Joint Forces Operation’, in order to prevent the passage of the observers of the OSCE special monitoring mission to the locations of their military equipment» — said Yakov Osadchy, an official representative of the LPR People’s Militia. «The high command of the Joint Forces Operation ordered the field commanders to take counter-measures against the UAVs of the special monitoring mission, in order to conceal the weaponry and military equipment, located on the territory of the private households, and in violations of the withdrawal lines» — added Yakov Osadchiy. These facts were confirmed by the reports from the mission observers.
«The Ukrainian military violated the additional measures for the control and enhancement of the ceasefire in Donbass for 140 times. Those measures are in effect since 27th of July, 2020» — said the deputy head of the People’s Militia of the DPR, Eduard Basurin. He added that in the 41st case, the ban on the use of fire, including sniper fire, was violated. The Ukrainian troops have used UAVs 25 times. There were 74 cases of combat engineering work on the positions of the Ukrainian military from 53rd and 54th separate mechanized brigades, the 35th and 36th separate marine brigades, the 79th separate airborne assault brigade, and the 56th separate motorized infantry brigade.
«Ukraine still hasn’t notified the observers of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission and the representatives of the Joint Center for the Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire Regime about the dismantling of the pontoon ferry near the village of Schastye» — said Yakov Osadchiy, an official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR. The Ukrainian troops made a pontoon ferry near the construction site of a checkpoint on the contact line, near the village of Schastye, in a violation of the Minsk agreements. Yakov Osadchiy noted that “this fact of a violation was brought to the attention of the OSCE coordinator in the Contact Group, in order to fix the violation of the first paragraph of the additional measures for the enhancement and control of the ceasefire, and to force Ukraine to dismantle the pontoon-bridge”.
«The Ukrainian troops used EW hardware to interfere with the work of the UAV of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission near the village of Orekhovo» — said Yakov Osadchy, an official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR. “In order to prevent the detection of the prohibited weaponry in the area of responsibility of the 14th Ukrainian brigade by the OSCE drones — a mobile group from the 20th separate electronic warfare battalion, stationed near the village of Orekhovo, used the ‘Bukovel-AD’ EW station to suppress the control and navigation channels of the OSCE mission” — he explained.
«The amnesty for the participants of the armed conflict in Donbass won’t be universal» — the Ukrainian minister for the reintegration of the uncontrolled territories of Ukraine, Aleksiy Reznikov, stated on-air of the ‘Ukraine 24’ TV channel. “The amnesty does not apply to the war criminals, marauders, psychopaths, and so on” — he explained. Aleksiy Reznikov underlined that «the militants will be responsible not only in accordance with the Ukrainian laws, but also with all the international conventions». He drew attention to the fact that the announcement of an amnesty of the participants of an armed conflict, motivated by separatism, is a standard international practice.

It has been established that the representatives of the Ukrainian Security Service, together with the Center of the Informational and Psychological Operations, constantly carry out such actions in order to intimidate the residents of the LPR.
